Our son has autism. The school plans to have an aide provide most of his special ed services.
The school says the aide doesn’t need formal training or experience because she will be supervised by a highly qualified special ed person.
You will need to educate those people who think using a paraprofessional to educate a child with autism is a good idea.
You won’t do this by waving the law at them, although you can use the law to frame questions.
In this issue of the Special Ed Advocate you learn when and how to provide information from acceptable sources – professional educators and people who train educators and administrators - about appropriate paraprofessional support.
Please don't hesitate to forward this series to other friends, families, or colleagues.
