Jake Seuntjens – Education Specialist - Northwest Service Cooperative

Whether working in a one-on-one capacity or supporting groups of students to reinforce previously taught concepts, paras have a great opportunity to impact the academic success of students.  This session will cover best practices in supporting students in attending to academic content and learning new material. We will cover accommodations addressing the practice of changing the ways students demonstrate their learning and how the information is accessed, as well as modifications of the curriculum and the need for changing what the student is expected to learn.
