District Trainings


This training series is broken down into five sessions that could be trained collectively for 10 PDPs; or trained individually as a district desires.



Paraprofessional Series

The goal of these sessions is to provide professional development for para-professionals to increase knowledge of their role in the classroom, identify commonly used special education terms and various diagnosis’ that are in their classrooms, learn to modify the student’'s curriculum, and to recognize and respond to specific behavior strategies. Topic areas can be expanded or revised based on identified needs.



Transition Series

The goal of these sessions is to provide professional development for staff to increase knowledge of their role in the transition planning process with students and families. Topic areas can be expanded or revised based on identified needs.
