An Expansion of the Peer-Tutoring Paradigm: Cross-Age Peer Tutoring of Social Skills among Socially Rejected Boys.
Gumpel, Thomas P.; Frank, Rachel
Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, v32 n1 p115-18 Spr 1999
This study examined the effects of a cross-age peer-tutoring program on the social skills of two sixth-grade and two socially rejected and isolated kindergarten boys. Peer tutoring consisted of the older boys conducting social-skills training with their younger tutees. The frequency of positive social interactions increased for all four boys, with maintenance of treatment gains at five weeks post-treatment. (Author/DB)
