The workshop by the Oregon Parent Training Institute is Sept. 24 in Boardman, Ore.
Bullying is a serious issue that impacts nearly every school in the nation. It's a behavior that knows no boundaries of class, race, gender, size of school, or age. Students who are bullied may grow angry, resentful, frightened or apathetic about school.
Parents can help their children with disabilities who are the targets of bullying by developing effective strategies for responding to bullying behavior.
Oregon Parent Training Institute will present a workshop of Sept. 24, 12:30 to 2:30 p.m., designed to introduce and define the five types of "Bullying and Disability Harassment."
Presenters will discuss a range of intervention strategies for the child who is the target of bullying that can be used by the parent, the parent and child, and the family and school.
Information given will be intended as a general guideline, across all disabilities and age groups, for creating a plan to address the unique needs of each child.
The event will be at the City of Boardman, 200 City Center Circle. To ensure enough materials will be available for everyone registration is required. For more information contact Robin Wortman at 888.505.2673, ext. 211. Confirmation calls are not provided.
