October is Bullying Prevention Awareness Month.
School should be a place where children feel safe and secure, yet many children are refusing to go to class, dropping out of sports & activities, and are no longer trying to socialize or make friends. Many students are changing schools - all because they are being bullied.
What is bullying and how prevalent is the problem? What happens when teachers and administrators fail to intervene? What impact does bullying have on students?
In this issue of the Special Ed Advocate you will learn what works in bullying prevention and intervention. Find out how schools, parents, and kids can take action to prevent this pervasive problem.
First, a favor. It's time to update your listing on the the Yellow Pages for Kids with Disabilities.
Please don't hesitate to forward this issue to friends, family members, or colleagues.
