Being an Advocate against Bullying


 
Most teens don’t like to see bullying, especially of students with disabilities, but they may not know what to do when it happens. Peer advocacy is an effective approach that enables students to speak out on behalf of others, and protect those targeted by bullying. PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center has developed a new PeerAdvocacy Guide that offers a variety of intervention strategies that can be tailored for specific bullying situations. The 32-page booklet explores how to address bullying of students with disabilities by engaging, educating, and empowering their peers with advocacy skills.
