Encouraging Self-Advocacy: PACER Discusses Bullying
Have you ever wondered what encouraging self-advocacy can look like?
In this video, Jody, director of PACER’s Parent Training and Information Center, shares a creative, real-life example to help visualize what self-advocacy can look like in action. One resource Jody shares within this episode is PACER’s Student Action Plan, which is a tool to develop strategies to prevent bullying and encourage self-advocacy.
