An Online Course for

Effective Inclusive Schooling

WHAT YOU GET

This energizing 5 session online course is for all paraprofessionals working in inclusive schools, grades K-12 who wish to increase their knowledge about supporting diverse learners. This online course is an effective stand-alone training for paraprofessionals using current, research-based and recommended practice. Dr. Causton’s book The Paraprofessional’s Handbook for Effective Support in Inclusive Classrooms can also be used as an excellent supplement for the course.

Topics for the course include: special and inclusive education basics, providing invisible supports in the classroom, academic, social, and behavioral supports, and strategies for effective communication and collaboration with others.

Each class is 30 minutes long and includes video and printable resources. We have designed the course to be asynchronous, so that participants with differing schedules can create unique timelines for beginning and completing the course. We have also made sure participants will always have access to the course, so they can log in and revisit specific sessions or favorite materials whenever they choose. Learning Logs and a Certificate of Completion are included, and once completed, the course can be credited with 3 professional development hours. If participants use The Paraprofessional’s Handbook as supplementary material, the course and book together can be credited as 6 professional development hours.

What People Say About this Course

This course was eye-opening for me. I never thought about what my support felt like for students, but now I feel really inspired to approach students in a different way.

Paraprofessional, Pennsylvania

It flows so well, I learned so much about the teachings and pedagogy around inclusive education; and it is broken up into manageable sections…it was great! Class 3 on behaviour was most significant. Thank you!!

Paraprofessional, New York

I learned so many new strategies for working with students and even collaborating with teachers. I feel like I have a better handle on how to advocate for kids now.

Paraprofessional, Maine

The most significant part of this course for me was the many resources and how the course was put together in short segments for each lesson. It’s one of the best professional development experiences I’ve ever had.

Paraprofessional, Iowa

The resounding message that paraprofessionals play a significant role and are an important team member was empowering. THANK YOU!

Paraprofessional, Maine

I loved the class on stress relievers and happiness and collaboration with others— it’s information that is so overlooked for paraprofessionals.
