Typically a shadow (or one to one assistant) is someone who assists the child by carrying out the program which is in place. So if your child is in a self contained class, the shadow will be his 'exclusive' teacher, keeping him on track, managing any behavioral program, etc. This frees up the class teacher to work with other children who may be in need of less support to participate in the general teaching environment.
The class teacher is in charge of creating the child's program along with the rest of the team (OT, SLP, Psychologist, Spl. Ed teacher- if in an inclusive setting, a social worker, etc). The shadow also gives input because he/she spends time exclusively with the child and travels with him (or her) to the different learing settings and helps him stay on task, complete work and models social language for your child.
As for how it is determined, I think the different schools have different procedures. Ask your child's school. It is not a good idea for you to become your child's shadow teacher...you can be one for another child if he/she is not in your child's class
Thanks so much for the response..It cleared my doubts...I think the last sentence makes lot of sense...Thank u v much...Regards..Neethi
mizzs very goog reply, neethi I want to add more, please be aware that some schools in the name of shadow will put on ayya to look after the child to keep him in this seat, that is not going to help really, shadow has to be trained professional who is supposed to help the child in academics and keep his attention since our children are distractible, very few schools accept mother as shadow, you will be lucky if the school do accept you, many schools does not allow the concept of shadow, so the first challenge is to find the school who will accept shadow, I think the shadow will be really helpful as the child he/she is going to higher grade above 5th grade when the academics really picks speed before you know it becomes so complicated . All the best, my child is only 4 right now, so far he is doing well in school with any external help.
