Everyone needs disability awareness training, regardless of their role in service delivery and education. A lack of knowledge may promote discrimination and oppression, which could lead to acceptance of victimization, abuse, and bullying. The ability to combat this starts with awareness. This presentation will focus on the methods and tools used to address and prevent bullying of individuals with disabilities provided by the First Responders Disability Awareness Training program.
