Discussion: Using Peers to Increase Behaviors of Isolated Children in School Settings: An Analysis of Generalization Effects
This review evaluates the effectiveness of peer mediation in increasing the social behaviors of isolated children in school settings. Studies indicate that peer assisted interventions can produce increases in social behavior and the generalization of treatment effects across a variety of situations. Discussion also focuses on ethical considerations when peers serve as behavior change agents, maximizing generalization effects, and suggestions for future research.
