Teaching Social Skills Using Peer-to-Peer Manding

Thursday, August 1, 2013 -
2:30pm to 3:30pm

This session will include a description of peer-to-peer manding as well as the goals of this procedure. Classroom implementation will be the primary focus and will describe prerequisite skills for learner participation, implementation of peer-to-peer pairing for more naive learners, choosing peer pairs, data collection systems, the importance of preference assessments, session set-up, and reinforcement for manding/giving items and when to fade adult reinforcement. Possible pitfalls of implementation, such as preventing sessions from looking "contrived," over-prompting by adults and students, and prompting other students, will be discussed. A presentation of student data and session videos will be included, pending parental consent.
