Paraprofessionals

Paraprofessional Services

Paraprofessionals working in special education and Title I are being held to higher standards than ever before. To meet these requirements, the Berks County Intermediate Unit offers comprehensive training for newly hired Paraprofessionals as well as Paraprofessionals who have been in the field for a while.

Many training opportunities are available to meet Paraprofessionals’ diverse needs. Working as a Paraprofessional is a six-day intensive learning experience for newly hired paraprofessionals to meet the highly qualified requirements of IDEA and Chapter 14 regulations.

The Paraprofessional Advanced three-year strand series allows Paraprofessionals to specialize in one of four different areas, including Low Incidence Disabilities, Inclusion, Behavior, and Reading. Additionally, many one-day training events are also offered on a variety of subjects including instruction, functional skills, transition, etc.

Paraprofessional Training

This is an six-day series that will prepare paraprofessionals to meet the rigorous federal and state standards and the Pennsylvania Paraeducator credential. Once the six days have been completed in their entirety, individual assessments are complete, and supervisory approval has been given, the paraprofessional will be able to apply for the PA Paraeducator credential. Participants must attend every one of the six sessions to meet the requirements.
