(2019, March) | Useful to Parent Centers and schools for sharing with families involved in their child’s special education.
Throughout the academic career of a child with a disability, he or she will come into contact with dozens of different professionals who are there for support. The list that this article from eParenting provides an overview of some of these individuals and a description of the role they may have. Examples include: the regular educator, the special educator, aides and paraprofessionals, therapists (e.g., occupational, physical), and others. Parents are cautioned to be aware that their child’s Individualized Education Program (IEP) will control who works directly with their child and what they do.
