These materials are designed for a special needs classroom. These classrooms are also called specialized support classrooms or alternative learning environments. In my years of teaching special needs students at nearly every grade level from kinder to 8th, I have learned so much, and I am excited to now share some of my strategies and methods for organization with you. I hope you enjoy this product and that it makes your life easier!
This 8 page guide offers paraprofessionals guidelines on responsibilities, expectations and how to redirect behavior both in the special education classroom and when they are supporting students outside of the classroom around campus. There are varying strategies on how to handle behavior, so please consider that this is just one plan. This guide also offers a plan for teachers to organize their paras’ time and responsibilities in order to assure complete supervision and accountability at all times. The templates for this plan can be purchased in the Companion Templates to this guide.
