About this video
Mary Schlieder Ed.D.
Through a Circle of Friends program, typically developing peers are taught important information about classmates with social challenges, and are invited and encouraged to befriend them. These peer mentors are provided education and awareness, strategies for connecting and supporting others who may be different, and given opportunities to socially interact on a regular basis. This presentation will discuss the specifics of implementing a circle of friends program. The webinar will include information on how to set up your group, how to address peer awareness and training about autism, teaching social skills, and developing relevant CoF lesson plans.
