- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
I would like to suggest your show feature Dr. Will Henson, author of Behavior Support Strategies for Education Paraprofessionals.
Our schools are increasingly staffed with paraprofessionals whose job it is to assist trained teachers and administrators in managing special needs students. These dedicated workers must manage challenging behaviors in general and special education settings with far less training then the school staff.
In easy to understand language, with some excellent examples, Dr. Henson, a child psychologist licensed in Oregon, gives paraprofessionals the understanding and function of behavior, positive and proactive methods to deal with challenging behavior, and gives a sound explanation of common disability and behavioral categories. This book is a must read for the paraprofessional facing the tough challenges of our overworked and understaffed districts. The Oregon public could really benefit from hearing what Dr. Henson has to say on the topics of special education in Oregon and Washington.
Here is a link to his website to contact him:
Thank you for your consideration and thank you for such a great program.
