RE: your future podcast on this issue: I would be more interested in learning more about what you see the limitations of discrete trial training...perhaps an explication of fundamental assumptions underlying its practice (i.e., behaviorism)...are students made aware of these before being recruited to implement?

I think that peer mentoring is a really good idea for students with Asperger's Syndrome. I am glad that KSC offers it. It is good for the person with the disorder to interact with someone else, and feel like they are not alone. They want to fit in a communmicate so badly, that this would really help them

Well Larry, it looks like i'll have to be the Devil's Advocate here since i'm not taking a class with where I need to suck up for a good grade.

"I think that the peer mentoring is a bad idea, Larry and Linda should spend that money on more wierd ass statues around the campus of KSC and a new helicopter for the psychology department."

Now isn't that a more memorable post than all these "I think Peer Mentoring is good, blah, blah, blah" posts?

This is a great program and i think that all schools should have this as an option for these students, so they know they will have someone to turn to.

I think every school should have some type of program like peer mentoring. It is great for students who have no one else to turn too. Even though the student doesn't have a disorder I still beleive that their should be a person he or she can go to to ask questions or recieve guidance in a certain area. This is also a great idea for those who have a disorder. It is nice to talk to someone your own age and not have to worry about being judged.
