Who Will Teach Our Children?...Use of Bilingual Paraprofessionals in Special Education.
Charter, Patricia Flores
In response to the shortage of qualified bilingual special education personnel to work with Limited English Proficient (LEP) special needs students, a program was developed in Vista Unified School District in North San Diego County, California, which involves training bilingual paraprofessionals to serve in special education settings. The paraprofessionals work with Spanish-speaking students who have primary language goals and objectives on their individualized education programs. Following a brief program description, a guide to the effective use of bilingual paraprofessionals in special education is provided, covering: advantages and disadvantages of using bilingual paraprofessionals; administrative planning options and support for use of bilingual paraprofessionals in special education; use of bilingual paraprofessionals in the classroom setting; training needs of special education certificated personnel in the use of bilingual paraprofessionals; and training needs of bilingual paraprofessionals in special education.
