Bullying: Information & Resources

According to the National Education Association, 1 in 7 children grades KG to 12 are impacted by bullying in one way or another. Whether the bullying is done in person or through technology the ramifications to the recipient can be very detrimental. More interest is directed towards this topic now as it impacts so many children today. Recent research has yielded some information about what may lend to someone engaging in bullying behavior as well as what may make someone more susceptible to becoming a victim of bullying. Many questions were posed about how this may impact children with disabilities and more specifically those who are Deaf and Hard of Hearing. This wiki page is set up to provide sharing of information and links to view for accessing a greater understanding about bullying, how it impacts all children, including those who have disabilities and those who are Deaf and Hard of Hearing.
