There’s no definitive answer to this question. There are all kinds of different kids and rooms. Some paras are one-on-one with a kid in a gen-ed room. Those kids may be developmentally disabled, physically disabled, be resource students, or have emotional disorders. There are also ILABS, BASES, and SELF rooms. I am in an MD room, which stands for multiple disabilities. Because my students especially thrive on consistency, it can be a monotonous job. However, with many different disabilities and schedules, I never know what to expect. Some of my students are aggressive, violent, high needs, have behavioral problems, elope from the classroom, or need constant diaper changes. Some students, especially in gen-ed rooms, require very little attention and assistance. Conversely, some students may be wheelchair bound, and they may need constant attention and care. So, there really is no definitive answer to this question. Follow up for more information.
