Bullying Children with Disabilities: A Global Epic
Ervin, Dana
Online Submission
Bullying is an issue in all schools, colleges and work places throughout the world. It is in the national news constantly. The media typically reports on bullying and harassment when it involves non-disabled children, mostly high school and college aged students. Very little attention is given to bullying and harassment of children with disabilities. Children with disabilities are being bullied at an alarming increasing rate. Bullying involving children with disabilities is much more complex as these children do not have the ability or coping skills to deal with the stress and anxiety that results from being bullied. Proactive strategies are needed in order to meet the needs of victims of bullies.
