Peer to Peer: General Resources


Peer to Peer support programs 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. Inclusion of students with ASD not only improves outcomes for the students with ASD, but it benefits all students and leads to a more positive, accepting school culture.

Implementation of Peer to Peer Programming During the COVID-19 Pandemic: Perspectives of School Employees

We are interested in learning about the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on Peer to Peer program implementation including how staff adjusted their programs during the pandemic and what staff learned that will inform their implementation moving forward. 

If you are a school staff member in Michigan who is on a team that implements Peer to Peer at the building-level, we would love to hear from you! You are still eligible to participate if your program is on-hold due to the pandemic. The survey and more information is available here.

Secondary and Elementary Peer to Peer Framework Ideas and Supports Webinar Series

The Secondary and Elementary Peer to Peer Framework Ideas and Supports webinar series is a guide through different framework models for Peer to Peer programs. This webinar series provides two experiences in the development of Peer to Peer programs, one from the elementary perspective in the classroom and one from the secondary perspective with Peer to Peer as an elective class partnered with Unified Champion Schools. Both perspectives are intended to generate new ideas that you can adapt to your Peer to Peer program. You may find some of the resources are not necessary for your program development and/or that you may need to develop additional resources addressing the unique culture and expectations of your school community.

The Secondary and Elementary Peer to Peer Framework Ideas and Supports webinar series is not intended to replace the Peer to Peer Training. This webinar series is considered a supplemental resource to the Peer to Peer Training.
