Creating a Lunch Buddy Program for Special Education Students
For my senior project, I decided I wanted to gather some of Mansfield High School's general education students that would be willing to sit with special education students during lunch. Many of our special ed students tend to sit alone at lunch, but it makes their day whenever one of their peers comes to sit with them. I wanted to make it clear that students are allowed to interact with their special ed peers. I was inspired to create this project because I have worked with many of our school's special ed students, and I know they loved having a peer with them. I also hope to go into special education in college, so I feel that it is a great idea to have as much experience as possible.
