Use Positive Strategies to Protect Your Child with a Disability from Bullying
Holmquist, Julie
Exceptional Parent, v41 n12 p32-34 Dec 2011
While any child can be a target of bullying, children with disabilities can be especially vulnerable. Research concerning children with disabilities and bullying indicates an increased risk for children with special needs. This article discusses how parents can help protect their children with disabilities from bullying and its devastating effects by promoting effective strategies such as PACER's Peer Advocacy Program, using the Individualized Education Plan (IEP) as a tool, working with the school, and knowing their child's rights under the law.
