Friendships and relationships in school not only contribute to a sense of belonging and enjoyment, but can also enhance students’ communication, academic engagement, and create opportunities for learning within and beyond the classroom. The absence of such satisfying relationships with peers can lead to loneliness, isolation, disengagement, and dissatisfaction with school. Students with complex communication challenges are likely to be even more isolated without strong peer bonds. Join language arts teacher Marcus and Sonja, a special ed co-teacher in his classroom, as they discuss how to implement peer-mediated strategies for non- or minimally speaking students.
