Situation/Case Study:

I have a special needs child in my class. He has a paraprofessional with him almost all of the time. When the Special Education case manager called a meeting regarding this child, the paraprofessional was not included. The paraprofessional is doing a fabulous job with the child and is very capable. It hurt her feelings and sense of worth when she wasn't included. She would have had valuable things to add to the discussion.
