  • new tools to help students actively participate in creating safer schools?
  • an opportunity to meet with peers and evaluate your schools response to bullying?
  • clear research based strategies that help students understand the appropriate steps to take when they experience or see bullying?
  • the opportunity to learn and explore with peers in a safe, supportive, learning environment? 

If so, join us for a FREE professional development opportunity offered to school administrators, teachers, and guidance counselors. 

These workshops are sponsored by the Learning Disabilities Association of Maine (LDA-ME) and funded by the organization thanks in part to a RUS grant and a grant from the LDA Foundation. LDA-ME serves children, families, and adults with learning disabilities through support, education, and advocacy.
