The Pyramid Model Consortium is offering Power of Peers from from their series Targeted Strategies to Support Inclusion of Children with Disabilities. Power of Peers is a 2 hour session and can be used for Continued Professional Learning hours.

This presentation will help teams prepare for and implement a peer social skills package to support the social skills development of all children, especially those in inclusive classroom settings. We will address four basic questions regarding peer-mediated social skills implementation: 1) What are the key skills to teach, 2) How to teach typical children intervention skills, 3) How to embed social skill opportunities across the day and, 4) What child outcomes can we expect.
