Peer-Mediated Interventions for Preschool and School-Age Children With ASD

Implementing effective approaches to enhance social communication with peers in natural environments is critical to improving core deficits in communication, joint engagement, and play skills. This webinar will discuss how SLPs can provide peer-mediated interventions (PMIs) for the preschool and elementary school students on their caseloads. The course will highlight the key components of setting up the environment, recruiting and training peers, teaching a range of communication skills, and measuring child-peer social progress. The webinar will describe approaches for increasing intentional communication of nonverbal preschool children using AAC as well as basic communication and conversation skills for elementary-age students, with an emphasis on matching the intervention context and strategies to specific student skills and needs.

Learning Objectives:

  • describe important components of PMIs and how to recruit and train peers
