As a sped teacher, how can I help my paras? What can I do for you to help you be more successful? What can I do before the school year to prepare to help you?

There has to be very strong communication in the teacher/para relationship. Also, be organized and let them know what you expect and have things ready. No matter if the things are schedules, worksheets, art projects, or anything else. Make sure you have everything together and then talk to them. If possible, have lunch with them or meet before school or stay late to have a person relationship with them, if they are willing. Working in such close quarters I think it's vital that you actually know each other. A friend of mine is a sped teacher with horrible paras, but she takes the time to try and get to know them in hopes things will improve.

Train your paras to work with the students. Make sure they know the IEPs of the students they are working with.
