The purpose of this research study was to provide training for peer tutors to use simultaneous prompting to increase the percentage of correct responses of sight words by students with moderate to severe disabilities. The study included four students with moderate to severe disabilities in an elementary school setting. A multiple probe (days) design across behaviors replicated across students was used to evaluate the effectiveness of the simultaneous prompting procedure used by peer tutors to teach students with moderate to severe disabilities in the general education setting. The results indicated the peers were able to reliably implement the procedures, but a functional relation was demonstrated with only one participant.
