Summary Every day, thousands of students with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) struggle to stay afloat at school, sometimes bullied, often ostracized. Mastering academics can be hard enough without the added challenge of navigating social situations that neurotypical kids take for granted. If students with ASD had a peer to model and reinforce socially appropriate behavior and coach them through schoolwork, it could help them feel at home in the student population. This book describes how to set up just such a peer-mentoring organization in your school or community. Based on the methodology of Applied Behavior Analysis, the gold standard in autism intervention but created and led by students, the Autism Ambassadors curriculum will promote leadership and improve the school experience for all students.
