Kids with disabilities can be active participants in bullying prevention. Thanks to funding from Liberty Mutual and The Doug Flutie Jr. Foundation, Boston vs. Bullies has created additional trainings and resources for Including Kids with Disabilities in Bullying Prevention.
This supplement to the Facilitator's Guide helps facilitators include kids with disabilities in bullying prevention.
Choose Your Play from Boston vs. Bullies is a series of short video clips to help kids model appropriate responses to bullying. The videos can be found below (under BULLY, VICTIM, and BYSTANDER) or on the Boston vs. Bullies Youtube channel.

Some kids may try to use friendship as a way to bully. This behavior can be difficult to detect. Kids with disabilities may have an especially difficult time detecting who is a friend and who is not. This activity is designed to help kids detect when friendship is used in hurtful way to bully others.
