Graduate project

Accommodating a bully prevention program for students with disabilities

This project seeks to bridge the gap between the research on bullying
 amongst students with disabilities and best practices for creating access to an evidence based
 bullying prevention program for students with disabilities. At this time, very little
 research on bullying has focused solely on students with disabilities. Students with disabilities
 have an increased risk for being bullied by typically developing peers. The intended
 audience for this project is teachers of fifth through eighth grade students with a
 variety of learning disabilities. Using students’ IEPs, the author accommodated an evidence-
 based bullying prevention program for a group of fifth through eighth grade students
 with a variety of learning disabilities.
