Kids With Disabilities

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.

Choose Your Play

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.
