bully boyAt Wrightslaw, we get letters every week asking advice about what to do when children are bullied... by peers, by older students, even by teachers.

Kids who have learning disabilities are especially vulnerable to bullying.

School is supposed to be a place where students feel safe and secure and where they can count on being treated with respect. In January, a young girl's suicide, apparently a result of cyber-bullying, prompted a look at bullying in Massachusetts' schools and focused attention on a nationwide problem.

This issue of the Special Ed Advocate focuses on bullying and school safety. Is your child a victim of bullying? Is your child a bully? Learn the signs that will help you identify potential problem situations and find out what parents, schools, and kids can do about it.

Please don't hesitate to forward this issue to other friends, families, or colleagues.
