The number of children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is currently at 1 in 59 and increasing every year. Students with ASD face unique challenges compared to their typical peers. Literature shows that these students face higher rates of bullying, higher likelihood of developing anxiety disorders, increased chance of isolation, and deficiencies in social skills. The goal of this project was to develop a grant proposal for a program that uses peer mentors to target social skills for elementary students with ASD. The program aims to teach these students appropriate skills that will not only facilitate school success, but also improve their daily interactions with others in both their personal and future professional lives. The submission or funding of this grant proposal was not a requirement for the completion of the project.
