This study examined the effects of peer support interventions in work-based high school settings on the work and social skills of students with significant disabilities. Research has documented peer support interventions have improved academic and social skills for students with and without significant disabilities in general education settings (Carter, Sisco, Melekoglu, & Kurkowski, 2007). This study used peer supports as a natural support option in an inclusive high school work setting to improve independent work and social skills for students with significant disabilities.
