Bullying and Cyberbullying among Deaf Students and Their Hearing Peers: An Exploratory Study
Bauman, Sheri; Pero, Heather
Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, v16 n2 p236-253 Spr 2011
A questionnaire on bullying and cyberbullying was administered to 30 secondary students (Grades 7-12) in a charter school for the Deaf and hard of hearing and a matched group of 22 hearing students in a charter secondary school on the same campus. Because the sample size was small and distributions non-normal, results are primarily descriptive and correlational. No significant differences by hearing status were detected in rates of conventional or cyberbullying or both forms of victimization. Cyberbullying and cybervictimization were strongly correlated, as were conventional bullying and victimization. Moral disengagement was positively correlated only with conventional bullying. Implications for practice and future research are discussed.
