A Core Curriculum and Training Program To Prepare Paraeducators to Work in Center- and Home-Based Programs for Young Children With Disabilities From Birth to Age 5

While paraeducators have become major contributors in the delivery of education services to children and youth who require individualized attention, opportunities for systematic, standardized training have not kept pace. The goal of these instructional materials is to provide personnel developers and trainers with resources they can use to improve the performance of the paraeducator workforce. This instructional program is one of a series developed by the National Resource Center for Paraeducators in Education and Related Services to prepare paraeducators to work in the following areas:

  • Center-based and home visitor programs for young children from birth to age 5.
  • Inclusive classrooms serving school-age students.
  • Transitional services and supported employment for teenagers and young adults.
  • Programs serving English language learners.
