Peer to Peer
Peer to Peer support programs increase opportunities for students with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and other developmental disorders 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. The Peer to Peer program supports the inclusion of students with disabilities, providing positive outcomes for both students with ASD and their peers.
