This workshop provides participants information about systems for establishing a peer to peer support program to increase opportunities for students with ASD to access general education settings and curriculum. Peers model typical academic and social behavior in educational environments throughout the school day and provide
support for students with ASD to promote independence and socialization.
Peer to peer support programs and inclusion of students with ASD not only impacts outcomes for students with ASD, but has a powerful impact on typical peers and at-risk students. The specific steps for developing a peer to peer support program will be presented including: recruitment, training and maintenance and includes the concept of medium of exchange as a way to connect students.
