What is shadow teacher training?

Shadow teacher training is a program designed to train individuals to work as a "shadow teacher" or "shadow aide" for students with special needs. A shadow teacher is a trained professional who assists a student with special needs in a mainstream classroom setting. The goal of the shadow teacher is to help the student integrate into the classroom, support their academic and social development, and ensure their safety and well-being.

Shadow teacher training programs typically cover topics such as understanding the needs of students with various types of disabilities, strategies for behavior management, communication and collaboration with teachers and parents, and techniques for adapting curriculum materials and instructional methods to meet the needs of the individual student. The training may also include practical experience working with students in a classroom setting, as well as ongoing supervision and professional development to ensure that shadow teachers are providing effective support to students.
