September 28 2012 Children with Special Needs Newsletter


Here's the latest article from the Children with Special Needs site at BellaOnline.com.

Paraprofessionals, Aides and Classroom Volunteers
http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art178065.asp
Paraprofessionals, aides, classroom volunteers and other adults may be working with our children in mainstream and special education classrooms, resource rooms, school libraries, cafeterias and playgrounds. Paraeducators are often considered essential and trusted members of the school community.

Browsing (and making purchases) at our Amazon aStores benefits the Children with Special Needs website. There are also links to books and other products beneath almost every article at the Children with Special Needs website. I appreciate your support! Most of the books are available at your public library or local bookstore, but the reader reviews and list of related resources on Amazon have been helpful to many parents and other advocates.

I was asked recently if there are templates online for a good daily Parent/Teacher/Para Communication Log. Joan Medlen had an excellent article in the Disability Solutions newsletter about home-school communication that is still available via PDF at Ohio's Parent Guide to Autism Spectrum Disorders starting on page 10 of the PDF (marked as page 217) so I sent along that link.

Have fun passing this message along to family and friends, because we all love free knowledge!
