Project Prevent and Address Bullying (PPAB)

NIU was awarded a five-year training grant from the U.S. Department of Education to train master's-level school psychologists in the area of bullying assessment, prevention and intervention. The goals for the NIU School Psychology Program's Project Prevent and Address Bullying (PPAB) for Students with Disabilities: A Multitiered Behavioral Framework are to:

  1. increase the number of high-quality, specially-trained, licensed school psychologists with unique training in Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS) to prevent and address bullying with an emphasis on students with disabilities; and
  2. improve the developmental outcomes of students with disabilities by decreasing bullying.
