“I’ve been an Ed Tech for 6 years and I’ve never seen this series – love it and thank you.  It is actually something ALL school staff could benefit from watching! 

I appreciate all you both did to make both part 1 and 2 so successful and highly informative. I will be using all the information to improve myself and to help my peers be successful in their jobs as well. I will be recommending your webinars to other existing staff and new hires. It is exactly what every new hire should be experiencing before they start. You both are extremely kind, knowledgeable and easy to work with. Your energy and dedication is amazing and contagious. Not one moment was wasted. Thank you both so much.”

Do you have a schedule for the four training sessions?
I need to buy this for several paraprofessionals, do I buy each one individually?
NO. YOU CAN PURCHASE FOR A GROUP (OF ANY SIZE) THROUGH A CREDIT CARD OR PURCHASE ORDER. WHEN YOU REGISTER, YOU’LL BE ASKED TO SHARE THE NAME AND EMAIL OF PARTICIPANTS. IF YOU WANT TO USE A PURCHASE ORDER, CONTACT DR. KRISTIE PRETTI-FRONTCZAK KRISTIE@KRISTIEPF.COM DIRECTLY.

ALL PARTICIPANTS WILL HAVE 24/7/365 ACCESS TO A COURSE DASHBOARD, WHICH WILL HOUSE RECORDINGS TO THE FOUR LIVE SESSIONS AS WELL AS ALL OF THE HANDOUTS AND RESOURCES SHARED.

How can I get employer support to enroll?
  • Discuss the knowledge you will gain from participating and how it will benefit your work, organization/district, colleagues, and the children/students you serve specifically.
  • Offer to prepare and deliver a short presentation and Q&A session to your colleagues to share what you learn, so others in your work setting can benefit.
  • Make a list of goals you will accomplish and how achieving them will be an asset to your work and help promote inclusion.

You can also use the following template to write an email to your employer.

Dear INSERT name of employer or supervisor,

In order to be more effective in promoting inclusion and teaching students with diverse abilities in our district, I’d like to take a course developed and taught by inclusion experts Dr. Julie Causton and Dr. Kristie Pretti-Frontczak.

This course will give me the skills I need to:

  • See children and students from a place of strengths
  • Ensure children and students are more independent (virtual, in-person, or hybrid)
  • Play a meaningful role in the development of IFSPs/IEPs
  • Support children and students with behaviors that are challenging

The overall outcome of this course is to increase my effectiveness as a paraprofessional from PreK-12 and boost student engagement, which I know are values of our district. 

The course, which includes four topical sessions and 24/7 access to a community of other paraprofessionals from across the world is only $149.00 and includes a course dashboard with lifetime access to recorded sessions, video and audio only files, transcripts, key PPT slides to print, and session-by-session handout packets with all the practical tools I can use and reuse.

The course can be purchased for me and/or all the paras in our district. Payment can be through a P.O. or CC. You can read more about what’s included here.

Thank you for considering my request,

INSERT your name

I need up to 40 hours of professional development. How many does this course offer?

You will receive 10 hours of professional development from this course. For K-12 paraprofessionals, we recommend you follow- up with this course by taking Dr. Julie Causton’s “The Inspired Paraprofessional” course. It will provide an additional 30 hours. For early childhood paraprofessionals…say tuned. We have a new book coming out soon and a series of books studies and webinars.
