LRP Media Group, a recognized leader in the special education publishing industry, has released The Paraprofessional’s Guide to Assisting Classroom Instruction — Second Edition and Workbook. This training tool teaches paraprofessionals how to provide instructional support for educators and support academic achievement for students. The new Second Edition offers a reproducible workbook filled with engaging activities and reflection exercises that complement an MP4 video file download. While learning about concepts in the video, paraprofessionals complete the workbook — a combination approach that teaches and reinforces current best practices to:

  • Identify and learn about students’ strengths and interests to connect to their learning style;
  • Reinforce appropriate student behaviors using different techniques;
  • Support a student who is experiencing a social and emotional challenge; and
  • Contribute to an effective instructional team and enhance communication skills.
