Teens teaching teens
This capstone provides a review of current best practice strategies for teaching students with autism social cognition skills. It outlines current strategies for teaching social skills and provides a review of what current literature says about using regular education peers as mentors for teaching students with special needs. Foundations of universal design are also outlined. The author provides an outline and lessons for an eight week course, taught in a block schedule, for regular education students who want to learn about autism and become a peer mentor. It proposes that regular education students would earn regular education elective credit for enrolling in the course. The paper also provides possible limitations of the above curriculum.
