Paraprofessionals

Description
 

A DirectSTEP® eLearning course from LRP

Part C of the Individuals With Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) describes the services authorized for children from birth to their third birthday. Typical developmental milestones are covered, as are the stages of development outlined in Swiss psychologist Jean Piaget's work. Characteristics of possible disability categories are listed in order to provide an understanding for paraprofessionals who work with infants and toddlers with disabilities. The process for identification as well as development of the individualized family service plan (IFSP) are reviewed, including the required components and timelines. This course provides examples of the types of supports that may be provided through an IFSP by paraprofessionals as well as suggested strategies that are appropriate for infants and toddlers in the areas of language, literacy, communication, numeracy, and social and sensory motor skills.
