Effective collaboration among school personnel, especially teacher-paraeducator collaboration, can improve achievement for students with special needs. The relationship between teachers and paraeducators not only serves as a social model for students but can also provide greater opportunities for instruction and learning. Drawing from 4 years of field-work in special education classrooms, we present a framework for understanding the collaborative relationship between teachers and paraeducators working in special education and inclusive settings. Using an interactive approach, you will learn strategies and evidence-based practices for strengthening collaborative relationships, as well as how to overcome challenges to effective teacher-paraeducator collaboration in your classroom.

After this webinar, participants will be able to:

  1. Understand the practical significance of effective teacher-paraeducator collaboration.
  2. Identify barriers to effective teacher-paraeducator collaboration.
  3. Demonstrate evidence-based practices to optimize teacher-paraeducator collaboration in their classroom and schools.
