Implementing Behavior Intervention Plans: How Can Special Education Teachers Better Support Paraeducators?


Session Abstract

Within the school structure, paraeducators now serve as primary behavior interventionists (Fisher & Pleasants, 2012), collect student behavior data, and manage student behavior (Maggin et al., 2009). Paraeducators spend a substantial portion of their workday implementing behavior management plans and providing behavior support (Carter et al., 2009). In this session, participants will become familiar with 6 tips for special education teachers who support paraeducators who implement BIPs.
