Bullying and Students With Disabilities: Strategies and Techniques to Create a Safe Learning Environment for All by Barry Edwards McNamara

 

Does your bullying policy protect all students?

A 2007 study uncovered a shocking fact: 80% of children with learning disabilities are bullied at school. As schools implement bullying policies, are they doing enough to address the unique needs of this 80%?  Drawing on extensive research on bullying in schools, Barry McNamara shows school leaders, teachers and parents how to identify and understand bullying and implement an inclusive bullying prevention program. Readers will discover:

  • What research says about bullying against students with disabilities
  • How programs fail to serve this population
  • A roadmap for an inclusive schoolwide program
  • Special intervention and coping strategies
