Paraprofessional Services (PP)

Hawaii Behavioral Health provides paraprofessionals to work with students (one on one or in small groups) who have been identified as having a developmental delay and/or disability, or behaviors that significantly impair the student’s educational progress Paraprofessional skills trainers are trained to implement behavior interventions and work with the student in the classroom setting. Data is collected on a daily basis to continuously inform the provision of services. The ultimate goal of paraprofessional services is to develop the student’s ability to function in a less restrictive environment with more natural supports. These services are provided at the direction of the student’s Individual Educational Plan. Paraprofessional skills trainers lead activities designed to provide sufficient repetition to reinforce skills learned in the classroom which can be generalized into broader settings in the community.
