National Presenter Series for Inclusive Practices (Virtual)
Presume Competence, Prioritize Peers & 10 Other Things Every Paraprofessional Needs to Know by Dr. Paula Kluth

The National Presenter Series for Inclusive Practices offers participants a unique opportunity to hear some of the leading national experts in education for diverse learners.  Participants will receive information on innovative strategies to support accessibility and proficiency for all learners inclusive of students with disabilities. The trainings support the Texas Teacher Standards and the Domains within the Texas Teacher Evaluation Support System (TTESS).  Join us for this unique and exciting opportunity.

Important Session Information:

Paraprofessionals assigned to support students with disabilities in the general education classrooms are critical members of inclusive schooling teams. Many, however, feel they do have adequate background knowledge about the “what”,“why” and “how” of inclusive schools. This workshop is designed to support new and veteran paraprofessionals who work in inclusive classrooms and need skills to collaborate with colleagues and support diverse groups of learners. This strategy-packed workshop will provide paraprofessionals with a few “big ideas” about supporting students with disabilities (e.g., presuming competence, honoring the “least dangerous assumption”, considering the dignity of risk,
teaching up). It will also be filled with practical, easy-to-integrate techniques and strategies that can be used in K-12 inclusive classrooms (e.g., visual supports, indirect communication, choices, natural supports).
