Circle of Friends 

Circle of Friends (CoF) is a form of Peer Mediated Intervention. Through a Circle of Friends program, typically developing peers   are taught important information about classmates with social challenges, and are invited and encouraged to befriend them. 

If you are interested in applying for a $300 grant to start a circle of friends group at your school  visit our website at:    https://www.unl.edu/asdnetwork/circle-friends .

Work Systems  

A structured work system is a primary component of the Structured Teaching framework, which was developed by the University of North Carolina, Division TEACCH (Treatment and Education of Autistic and related Communication Handicapped Children). 

 A structured work system is a systematic means of presenting information in a way that is received and understood by the individual. The goal of a structured work system is to promote independence by providing the individual information on what to do in a designated work area. In structured work systems tasks and activities are organized in a way that are understandable to students with Autism Spectrum Disorder.
