Nugent, Mary
British Journal of Special Education, v28 n2 p71-79 Jun 2001
This article describes a cross-age peer tutoring program in reading developed and implemented at a special school for students (ages 8-18) with moderate learning difficulties in Ireland. Evaluation studies indicate multiple benefits accruing to both the learners and the helpers including progress in reading, enhanced feelings of self-worth, and more positive attitudes toward school.
