12/7/21: Creating a Culture of Inclusion: Anti-Bullying Strategies for Self-Advocates and Supporters
Presented by the NJ Self-Advocacy Project and NJ Statewide Self-Advocacy Network, this interactive webinar will focus on strategies for identifying and addressing bullying in school and beyond. After attending this webinar, participants will be able to identify different forms of bullying and its prevalence as well as specific ways to help students and adults with disabilities effectively respond to bullying in-person or online. We will review case examples to spur discussion and share techniques for creating a bully-free culture in the classroom, day program, and family home.
