About the eBook

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 studies on bullying in schools, Barry McNamara provides a research-based overview to understand bullying. Additionally, this book shows how to identify bullies and victims and implement an effective and inclusive bullying prevention program.
Readers will discover:

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

Start down the road to create an inclusive and tolerant school climate where every student feels safe and valued.

"It has long been known that students with disabilities are targets for bullying or exhibiting bullying behavior. This book provides information on how teachers, paraprofessionals and parents can address bullying with students with disabilities within the schoolwide program to meet the individual needs of the child and create a safer school environment."
— Barbara Hayhurst, Special Education Teacher
Lakevue Elementary, Nampa, ID

"Bullying of students with disabilities is often unaddressed in many schools. This book shines a light on a problem that often goes unnoticed and provides sound advice and guidance to all school-based staff."
—Mary Reeve, Educational Administrator
