paraprofessionalˌpær ə prəˈfɛʃ ə nl
a trained worker who is not a member of a profession but who assists a professional
A person who is trained to assist a professional.
Of or relating to this assistance.
Paraprofessional is a job title given to persons in various occupational fields, such as education, healthcare, engineering and law, who are trained to assist professionals but do not themselves have professional licensure. The Greek prefix "para" as used here indicates beside or side by side; hence, a paraprofessional is one who works alongside a professional. The paraprofessional is able to perform tasks requiring significant knowledge in the field, and may even function independently of direct professional supervision, but lacks the official authority of the professional. For example, a person who hires a paralegal in lieu of a lawyer to complete bankruptcy forms is still considered to be filing pro se. Some paraprofessional occupations require special testing or certification in the field, while others require only a certain level of education. In some occupations, such as that of teaching assistant, requirements differ geographically although duties are essentially the same. This concept of a paraprofession exists predominantly in the United States; it is not commonly found in the sociology of professions in the UK or Europe, for example.
Paraprofessional is a title given to individuals in various occupational fields, such as education, librarianship, healthcare, engineering, and law. Historically, paraprofessionals assisted the master professional of their field. In more recent times, paraprofessionals have become a professional in their own right, providing services which meet the needs of a particular recipient or community.
