Many individuals with ASD want friends, but struggle with social communication skills, making it difficult to interact effectively with peers and form social relationships. Peer training and education can be vital to establishing a positive social environment for individuals with ASD. There are many strategies that involve training peers to be a "buddy" or "mentor" to enhance learning, academics and social skills for individuals with ASD. Some of these include Peer-Mediated Instruction and Intervention, Video Modeling and Peer Modeling. Having a peer support program to promote the inclusion of individuals with ASD not only improves outcomes for the students with ASD, but can also impact a number of outcomes for peers.
