The employment of paraprofessionals to assist in the provision of special education services has been increasingly common in recent years. The authors provide a preliminary discussion of specific roles that paraprofessionals could assume in assisting professionals in educational programming for hearing-impaired children. The article is organized around responsibilities relating to diagnosis, instruction, instructional support, classroom behavior, and communication skills. Brief sections on inappropriate assignments and training implications are also included.
