A shadow aide is trained personnel who will attend the class with your child in order to assist him during the lesson. Shadow aide will provide as much or as little support as needed by the children to understand and perform the education needs.. The shadow aide may focus on any combination of academics, classroom skills, impulse control issues, living skills, social skills, and following instructions. As the child becomes more independent, the aide will gradually reduce their support until the child is independent. Factually it has been observed that the child assisted by shadow aides is more successful in the class compare to without shadow aide.
Who needs shadow aide
Children who show traits of Autism, ADHD, Learning Disability, Down's Syndrome and other developmental disorders certainly have a tough time settling at school and home. Often, it is due to teachers and parents who do not understand the effective ways to incite behavioral and developmental progress in the child. To address this, we created a team of paraeducator and educator who work with children having special needs.
