Peer-Assisted Learning Strategies (PALS) is a peer tutoring program available in the areas of reading and mathematics that incorporates peers as change agents in academic intervention. Developed at Vanderbilt University by Douglas Fuchs, Lynn S. Fuchs, and their colleagues, PALS is currently available in reading from kindergarten through high school and in mathematics from kindergarten through sixth grade. PALS is designed for implementation in general education settings with all students, including students with disabilities, and research supports the use of both Reading PALS and Math PALS. We provide recommendations for the implementation of PALS, as well as considerations of diversity and equity.
