In the Face of Force: Helping Deaf Children Cope
Tresh, Jennifer
Odyssey: New Directions in Deaf Education, v5 n2 p34-36 Spr 2004
Bullying happens everywhere--in residential settings, schools, neighborhoods, and even at home with siblings or relatives. Bullying can occur within the deaf school community as well. Students can be victimized in the hallways and playgrounds, and residential students can be victimized in the dormitories. Bullies typically target children they see as easy victims--students who are physically weaker, may have poor communication abilities, or are often alone. Deaf and hard of hearing children can be at an even greater risk. In their ignorance, bullies may see deaf or hard of hearing children as weaker because they cannot hear and defenseless because they cannot tell what has happened to them. This article provides some basic self-defense techniques.
