This 140-minute recorded webcast will review the peer-mediated interventions that have been shown to be effective in increasing skills in learners with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). Based on a literature review and successful practice in the home, clinical and school settings, we will review how to train peers so they are more effective mediators and learn a variety of ways to use peers to facilitate instruction and learning for students with ASD. Participants will review videos demonstrating peer-mediated interventions as well as other techniques that have been effective in clinical and school settings but may not yet have as much supporting research.
This webcast will enable participants to:
- Train peers so they are more effective
- Apply a variety of ways to use peers to facilitate instruction and learning for students with ASD
- Understand the effectiveness of specific interventions based upon recent published research.
