Presented by: Jo Prestia
Teacher PD Event Information: 6 Teacher PD Hours
This workshop is an opportunity for Learning Support Officers (LSOs), Teacher Aides (TAs), and Integration Officers to explore their roles and responsibilities in and out of the classroom. The main role of an LSO is to assist students on an individual or group basis in specific learning needs under the direction of a teacher who is ultimately
responsible for the design, implementation and evaluation of education programs and related services (CECV 2014).
There are few training programs or research data to identify skills and knowledge required to successfully establish and maintain a healthy relationship between teacher and LSO that leads to optimal learning opportunities for students with disabilities. In this workshop we will explore ideas and offer participants, strategies to assist in building and sustaining these relationships in schools.
