Paraprofessionals

Paraprofessional working with student

Instructional paraprofessionals work under the guidance of both general and special education teachers to support educational programming. Paraprofessionals may be called classroom aides, teacher assistants, instructional aides, or job coaches.

Personal Care Assistants (PCAs) provide one-to-one, non-instructional support to individual students for activities of daily living, health, behavior, etc.
