Do you work with students with an IEP or 504 plan? In this workshop, participants will gain an understanding of these programs, including the federal laws that govern them. Understanding these plans will help to ensure that students excel and that paraeducators understand their role in implementing them. Participants will discuss how paraeducators can use this information to successfully meet the needs of the "whole student" and the importance of communication between teachers, paraeducators, and other members of the instructional team. By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to identify how to use this information to provide the best interventions and support to ensure student success.
