Paraprofessionals: Tools for Your Toolbox

This online course for “Paraprofessionals: Tools for Your Toolkit” break down each of the seven tools into two or three parts, and include a video for each part, a pre-assessment, a post-assessment, reflection questions, and useful resources that are relevant to each tool’s content. The topics covered throughout these seven tools include: Understanding Disabilities, Roles & Responsibilities, Collaborating with Teachers, Academic Instruction, Accommodations & Modifications, Empowering Students to Be Independent, and Managing Behaviors. This course is designed to allow self-paced learning and to provide time for reflection throughout. We anticipate that each of these 7 tools would take 1 ½ – 3 hours to complete individually, depending on the tool’s content and time spent on the activities and assessments.
