Changing Roles of Paraeducators in Early Childhood Special Education.
Hadadian, Azar; Yssel, Nina
Infant-Toddler Intervention: The Transdisciplinary Journal, v8 n1 p1-9 Mar 1998
Analysis of survey responses of 70 paraeducators working in early-childhood settings found paraeductors engaged in 30 different tasks of instructional and/or clerical nature, yet only 30% had received training. Data support other findings indicating a lack of adequate training, few opportunities for career advancement, low wages, and poorly defined job descriptions. Recommendations for changes are offered.
