Thank You

PACER’s first in-person Benefit in more than three years was last Saturday!

Thank you to everyone who attended the event on November 5. It was a fantastic evening in support of PACER’s programs for families of children with disabilities and all students who are bullied.

Weren’t able to be there? PACER would like to share our event video with you. Enjoy this recap of PACER’s beginnings, PACER today, and a special tribute to Paula Goldberg.

National Bullying Prevention Center

New! Let’s Talk About Bullying and Disability

Information will be featured throughout November about disability-based bullying. Everyone is invited to get involved by sharing how they view the intersection between bullying and disability. The idea is using the medium of your choice, such as video, art, or written or spoken word — to respond to the question, “What do you want everyone to know about bullying and disability?”

Does My Child Have an Emotional or Behavioral Disorder?

What to Look for: Among all the dilemmas facing a parent of a child with emotional or behavioral problems, the first question-whether the child's behavior is sufficiently different to require a comprehensive evaluation by professionals-may be the most troublesome of all. Even when a child exhibits negative behaviors, members of a family may not all agree on whether the behaviors are serious.
