Evaluating Inclusion: The Progress and Success of the Amigos School Program in Peterborough Highschools

Proj. #:4689
Description: The Amigos school program matches up disabled and non-disabled students as buddies who then get involved in lunch hour activities together. The aim of the program is to create a sense of inclusion for both disabled and non-disabled students. The purpose of the project will be to research how successful our Amigos school program is from the perspective of the teachers, students and parents/guardians of the participants. We would like qualitative and quantitative research for our own evaluation purposes. We would also like to learn about best practice in this field from similar programs run in other communities.
