Effective training for paraprofessionals is critical to the success of inclusive schools—but planning professional development sessions can be a complicated, time-consuming process. That’s why inclusion experts Julie Causton and Kate MacLeod created this digital Facilitator’s Guide, an essential companion to The Paraprofessional’s Handbook for Effective Support in Inclusive Classrooms, Second Edition.

User-friendly and comprehensive, this guide is your one-stop resource for effectively planning and delivering six 1-hour live or virtual training sessions on critical topics, each aligned with one or more chapters from the book. You’ll use the guide in tandem with the book to lead meaningful discussions with staff, communicate immediately useful information on scheduling and preparation, and enhance on-the-job knowledge and skills of the paraprofessionals you work with and/or supervise. Complete with step-by-step instructions and a package of online support materials, this invaluable resource is the key to preparing paraprofessionals to thrive in inclusive K–12 classrooms and provide effective, respectful supports to their students.

  • Helps you teach the skills that matter. These sessions will help paraprofessionals master every key facet of their complex role, from professional collaboration to academic and behavior support.
