Peer to Peer (P2P) is one of the most impactful evidence based practices for individuals with Autism, and also provides many benefits to general education peers. These monthly virtual round table meetings will allow participants to network, share resources and ideas with other districts running P2P programs, while learning more about the benefits of peer to peer programming. We will explore what P2P formats and tools are being utilized at all levels. Participants will be encouraged to share ideas regarding what is working well in their programs as well as to problem solve regarding challenges that may come up throughout the school year. Whether you have an established program or are looking to start one, these roundtable meetings are for you!
