Play provides an excellent opportunity for young children to practice appropriate social behaviors and develop friendships. This chapter discusses examples of interventions that directly teach peers how to interact appropriately in play situations. Students can be utilized as powerful intervention agents in prompting, initiating, and reinforcing social play. Recommendations for implementing peer-mediated play interventions are included. This chapter also includes considerations of diversity and equity in the use of students to promote positive play in their peers.
