I'm looking for information about these positions, whether you know anything or can point me to a resource I'd appreciate it (I already tried talking to some people who work in schools as well as calling the city and state level departments of education. They were unhelpful.) Here are some of my initial questions: 1. What qualifications are needed in order to provide these services? 2. Is there any additional paperwork, application, whatever, in order to become a provider or is it enough to just be qualified? 3. What is the compensation? If you take a full caseload are there benefits like a full-time job? 4. What are the actual job descriptions? What do you have to do in these positions? Well, I guess that's enough for starters! #1 is my main question though the others are also things I'd like to know. I'd also love to know why it's so hard to find this out when there are so many kids who are eligible for these services! TIA!
