SJSD PEER MODEL PROGRAM
What is a Play Pal?
A play pal is a child that is at least 3 years of age and has demonstrated advanced abilities in the areas of language and age appropriate socialization skills. These students serve as a peer models for students with disabilities.
The program is cost-free for eligible students.
Transportation may be provided for those students that demonstrate a need and reside within the preschool’s attendance area.
To determine eligibility as a SJSD play pal, students must participate in a developmental screening. Following an early childhood screening, you may be notified that your child is eligible to serve as an SJSD play pal.
