The involvement of students with disabilities within the bullying dynamic has been recognized as a pressing issue within the nation's schools. Unfortunately, few studies have examined the psychosocial outcomes related to the bullying involvement of students with disabilities. However, involvement in bullying has been linked to negative short- and long-term outcomes for students with and without disabilities, increasing the necessity of exploring the relationship between psychosocial outcomes and bullying involvement. The purpose of this article is to initiate this discussion and highlight contemporary findings involving bullying among students with disabilities, as well as relate these finding to practical application and intervention.
