MVTHS students perform educational play

(Continued)

BLUFORD — —

I think it's very important because it's something that happens everyday, but not a lot of people think about or really pay a lot of attention to,” Long said. “Especially with the teachers, it's good that they could notice it and maybe help put an end to it.”

Peer partner Malorie Garner, also a performer in the play, said many times teachers aren't aware of how much students with disabilities can be affected by feelings of isolation or exclusion.

And the exclusion does not always take the form of something obvious like bullying. It can be a lot more subtle, Garner said.

It's usually the small things,” Garner said.

After Friday's show, 12 of the Project UNIFY students presented four professional development sessions for the teachers who attended.

The session topics included Unified Sports, SO Get Into It Curriculum, Anti-Bullying/Social Justice, and R-Word Campaigns.
