We recently added a new feature to our discussion board that will let you meet and discuss issues with people from your own state. Visit the Regional Section of the discussion board, look for your state and let others from your state know that you are here! (Registration required for new users).
The U.S. Department of Education has announced proposed regulations to implement the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act of 2004 (IDEA) and invites public comment. So that members of the public will have as much time as possible to review the proposed regulations, the Department has posted an unofficial copy. The Council for Exceptional Children (CEC) has assembled a quick side by side document showing differences with IDEA 1997 (pdf).
This new blog section to our site will include updates to the National Resource Center for Paraprofessionals website as well as other paraprofessional news. You can view past comments by category or date (menu to the right). Also, feel free to leave a comment on any of the posts!
