LRP Media Group, a recognized leader in the special education publishing industry, has released The Special Ed Administrator’s Training Toolkit: Professional Development for Paraprofessionals: Strategies to Apply Behavior Improvement Plans and Interventions.

This complete training binder gives you all the tools and resources you need to conduct interactive group training that gives paraprofessionals an understanding of student behavior and teaches them strategies to prevent and replace inappropriate behavior and improve appropriate behavior.

Paraprofessionals will learn best practices to support key components of behavior improvement plans, how to prioritize which behaviors to address to have the greatest impact on improving other problem behaviors, and ways to determine the effectiveness of behavior improvement strategies, among other skills.

The toolkit offers special ed administrators tips to create an inviting learning environment where their paraprofessionals interact. It includes suggested timing, content breaks, and activities for one six-hour session, two three-hour sessions, or four 90-minute sessions.

The toolkit also includes:

  • Trainer takeaways with practical pointers to supervise paraprofessionals and tools you can use for your interactions with them.
  • Testing and portfolio documentation with a test and homework items.
  • Bonus: A code to download activities, participant handouts, PowerPoint slides, and other included tools — all ready to use!

The Special Ed Administrator’s Training Toolkit: Professional Development for Paraprofessionals: Strategies to Apply Behavior Improvement Plans and Interventions is available for purchase from LRP Publications’ online store.
