Learning to Fit In

PLAINFIELD, Ill. -- Juniors Myles Walters and Deontre' Brown stand before the class and demonstrate the proper way to greet another student.
They spread their fingers open and show how to perform a high five.
Not too hard, not too soft, they say. Just give the other person a firm slap.
The two students at Plainfield East High School then invite their classmates to practice how to do a high five with them, and they applaud them when they do it correctly.
Walters and Brown are among a group of student peer helpers, who assist special education students twice a week with the help of the school's speech-language pathologist and social worker.
