Peer modeling (PM) is a peer-mediated intervention that can be effective in teaching students’ appropriate social skills and classroom behaviors and has been shown to be effective in students with autism spectrum disorders, emotional behavioral disorders, and other developmental disabilities. To implement PM, a peer model is carefully selected and instructed display a desired behavior in close proximity of the targeted student, or learner, how to behave in a similar context. There are two variations of PM that can be utilized in a classroom setting including in vivo PM, which is when the targeted student is in close proximity to the peer model, and video PM (VPM), which utilizes video recordings rather than in person scenarios for the targeted student to watch an imitate. Recommendations for implementation, advantages, and diversity considerations in both PM and VPM are discussed in this chapter.
