PLATTSBURGH, N.Y. (April 19, 2013) — Teachers are trained to accommodate and relate to students who have disabilities, but children usually aren’t.
Dr. Patricia Egan, professor of school psychology, is out to change that. She is co-directing a new program with adjunct lecturer Andrea Martino that promotes friendships between students and their peers with autism spectrum disorder.
The Peer Network Program recruits students who exhibit maturity, empathy and respect for their peers. They learn about autism spectrum disorder, study social skills and are then paired with students with the disorder in an effort to provide the latter with the security and guidance that can be found through a peer relationship.
