Reviews

I highly recommend this for paraeducators, special and general education teachers, and problem-solving teams looking for things to try for students. Get many copies! -- Beverly Plagge, Paraprofessional Educator Hammeken has provided an invaluable tool for paraprofessionals, school administrators, and teachers, both general and special. This book is a goldmine of information. -- Esther Eacho, Learning Disabilities Resource Teacher This is a great guide. I have already used excerpts for an informal paraprofessional workshop in my school. The paraeducators thought that it covered all the areas of concern that they have. They couldn't believe how many ready-to-use ideas it had and felt that the appendix alone was worth the price. -- Dawne Dragonetti, Special Education Teacher and Instructional Coach A well-designed reference and learning tool for paraprofessionals. Many of the suggestions, examples, and vignettes could be applied to general educations students as well as those with disabilities. The valuable templates can easily be reproduced and used with students. -- Renee Bernhardt, Special Education Teacher
