  • Buddies Learning Together 06250
    The “Buddies Learning Together” program is a student-to-student support system for students with special needs educated in Farmington Public Schools. It supports students with special needs throughout their school day in all settings, including general education classrooms. A student with special needs is paired with a buddy who acts as an advocate and mentor in the classroom setting. The buddy student consistently broadens the opportunities of the student with special needs to socialize, communicate, and demonstrate learning competencies. The buddy learns leadership, problem-solving and collaboration skills. Additionally, the buddy learns about disabilities and how these disabilities impact school. This course can be taken for repeat credit. **Pathway: Human Services
