A number of studies have included typically developing peers and other nontarget peers in social skills groups with target students. These students often serve as models for appropriate behavior and provide opportunities for the target students to practice their social skills. This chapter discusses the utilization of peers in social skills training groups and discuss various ways to utilize peers (e.g., peer initiation, social network interventions). Guidelines for peer interventionist selection and training are included. This chapter also includes considerations for diversity and equity within peer-mediated social skills training.
