How To Be A Para Pro is a book that must find its way to every school district, every school, and every classroom where children with autistic spectrum disorders are educated...Regardless of the page number, the goal of this volume never falters from view: placing information in the critically important hands of the paraprofessional...If applause can be silent and verbally unexpressed, Diane will ultimately know the applause of children who experience educational environments that are trained, understanding, and supportive of their efforts to learn. Simply stated, this is a very important book for paraprofessionals, educators, and the children they serve. (Carol Gray, Editor, The Morning News, Jenison, MI; Developer, Social Stories)
OUTSTANDING - The one book every paraprofessional who works with students within the autism spectrum should have. Part One: Autism Spectrum Disorders 101: A Short Course is concise and highlights the essential information every paraprofessional should know when working with students within the autism spectrum. Part Two: The Art and Science of Being a Para Pro, utilizes a "cook book" format, making it quick and easy to access information, allowing for immediate reference. Real-life examples and proven strategies make this book not only user friendly but immediately effective for all paraprofessionals who use it. A one of a kind!
