SPED 1000 - Peer Tutoring

SPED 1000 is a concurrent enrollment course intended to teach high school youth the tutorial skills necessary to maintain and improve performance of students with disabilities. High school juniors and seniors will learn effective instructional skills, practice skill components, and receive evaluation on the extent to which they use effective tutoring strategies. Additionally, students in this course will be taught to become advocates for people with disabilities. As a peer tutor working in a school classroom with a student who has disabilities, participants will learn about special education legislation, confidentiality and protection of educational records, social issues driving services for children with disabilities, assessment of academic and social skills, data collection, self-determination, and demonstrating exemplary behavior as a role model for individuals with disabilities.
