These strategies will ultimately lead to improved instruction, prompting, and support for students, and in turn leading to higher outcomes for students.

  • Gain strategies for effectively communicating with their paraprofessionals.
  • Learn strategies for coaching and providing feedback to their staff in a way that leads to improved outcomes for students.
  • Ways to improve team relationships through trusting systematic approaches.
