A Peer-Mediated Proximity Intervention to Facilitate the Social Interactions of Children with a Pervasive Developmental Disorder.
Roeyers, Herbert
British Journal of Special Education, v22 n4 p161-64 Dec 1995
A peer-mediated intervention was used to improve the social skills of 3 children with autism (ages 5 to 13). The intervention paired each child with a nondisabled peer who initiated interaction persistently within the autistic children's usual school setting. The autistic children demonstrated more frequent interactions and more positive and appropriate behaviors following the intervention. (DB)
