Survey Finds Teachers, Paraeducators Largely Unprepared For Students With IEPs
[Source: Disability Scoop]
Special educators say that many of the teachers and paraprofessionals who work directly with students with disabilities are ill-prepared to do so.
In a survey of nearly 1,500 special education teachers across the country, just 8 percent rated the general education teachers they work alongside as well-prepared to serve students with exceptionalities. And, only 12 percent had confidence in the paraeducators who are frequently tasked with supporting kids with disabilities at school.
