The purpose of this project was to create a resource for beginning special education teachers outlining and describing practical strategies for working effectively with paraprofessionals. A quick reference guide was designed according to feedback from an expert panel drawn from professionals within the education field as well as from a field review conducted with beginning special education teachers. Feedback from both the expert panel and the field review indicated that the developed quick reference guide was a useful resource and addressed an important need for local beginning special educators. Implications relating to the use of this document in supporting beginning special educators in working effectively with paraprofessionals are discussed.
