Student Paraprofessionals in School Psychology: Practices and Possibilities
John L. McManus
ABSTRACT: Paraprofessional program development in school psychology is discussed with a focus on student paraprofessional models. Presented is a rationale for the paraprofessional helper concept, an overview of key issues in using paraprofessionals(program development, implementation, management, ethical and legal considerations),and descriptions of situations for using student paraprofessionals in school psychology service delivery systems. It is suggested that the full potential of paraprofessional school psychology can be realized by developing school/community interactive models.
