Abstract or Summary
  • The use of paraeducators has increased as a main mechanism to include more students with disabilities in multiple settings in the public schools in the U.S. Research has examined the use of paraeducators in typical classroom settings but little is known about their role in physical education. Although the utilization of paraeducators is intended to be a supportive service delivery option, many concerns and challenges have resulted. The purpose of this study was to explore the particular realities of paraeducators in general physical education as experienced by the teachers and the paraeducators. The paraeducator role in physical education, standards surrounding the role, supervision, and training were all examined. Data were collected from questionnaires, interviews, and observations. Results indicate concern about the clarity of the role, the supervision and training of both paraeducators and teachers in physical education.
