The laminated guide Bullying Prevention for Students with Disabilities is designed to help principals, teachers, and other school staff understand the problem of bullying of students with disabilities, including the rights of students with disabilities and responsibilities of schools under federal and state laws. It offers strategies for preventing bullying of students with special needs, dealing with bullying incidents, promoting social competence, and creating a positive and safe classroom and school climate.
Written by Dr. Kenneth Shore, author of the book The ABCs of Bullying Prevention and several laminated guides, including A Teacher's Guide to Working with Parents, A Parent's Guide to Working with Teachers, and An Educator's Guide to Bullying Prevention, this six-page (bi-fold) guide is an invaluable quick reference tool that provides specific suggestions for how to
Use the IEP of students with disabilities as an anti-bullying tool
Support the student with special needs who is the victim of bullying
Promote social skills development
Create a positive classroom and school climate
"Dr. Shore’s Bullying Prevention Guide provides in-depth and comprehensive information regarding the impact of bullying on children with disabilities, their legal protections, and what schools can do to prevent bullying. Schools will find this guide to be an invaluable resource, not only regarding children with disabilities, but all children."
