Peer Mentoring for Students with Intellectual Disabilities: Examining Relationship Dynamics

Peer Mentoring for Students with Intellectual Disabilities: Examining Relationship Dynamics

Peer mentoring is a well-established tool for supporting college students, and it often yields strong benefits (Budge, 2006; Colvin & Ashman, 2010). Much of the research to date has examined characteristics of mentors or mechanisms to support mentees. Little of that research focuses on the use of peer mentoring for college students with intellectual disabilities (ID).
