Peer Tutoring and the Severe Special Needs Student: A Model High School Program.
Gurry, Susan
Project Mainstream, a regional program for adolescents with severe special needs, aimed for maximum integration through involving students in common activities. A peer tutoring program was implemented based on needs of high school students for involvement, information, instruction, independence, and interaction. Peer tutors were instructed regarding behavior modification, data-keeping, emergency procedures, leisure and communication skills, performance levels, and individual differences. Beginning with one-to-one experiences, peer tutors gradually expanded to small group activities. The program was designed to be beneficial to both tutors and the handicapped students. The program helped to increase knowledge and acceptance of students with severe special needs. (CL)
