Recognize, Respond, Report: Preventing and Addressing Bullying of Students with Special Needs

Overview

Bullying in schools is a national problem that affects a high percentage of students with special needs. This ready-to-use guidebook gives K–12 educators, administrators, and school counselors the research-based interventions they need to stop bullying in its tracks—and prevent it before it starts.

Using a simple framework of 3 Rs (Recognize, Respond, and Report), you'll master the core components of preventing and addressing bullying and disability-based harassment at the district level, classroom level, and individual level. Practical, proven strategies and tools blend with heartfelt, real-world advice from students who've experienced bullying themselves. An easy fit with your existing initiatives, whether you use PBIS or a commercial anti-bullying program, this essential resource will help you create a safe and secure learning environment for all students to reach their full potential.

THIS BOOK WILL HELP YOU:

  • distinguish bullying from normal childhood conflicts
  • develop effective anti-bullying interventions for victims, bystanders, and students who exhibit bullying behaviors
  • address the current legal ramifications of disability-based harassment
  • weave social-emotional learning into your existing curriculum
  • establish a positive and welcoming school climate where respect and acceptance are the norm
  • collect and analyze data on bullying for data-based decision making and results-driven accountability
  • involve parents addressing the issues surrounding bullying, at home and at school
  • understand how teachers and staff may unwittingly contribute to a culture of bullying—and how to stop it

PRACTICAL MATERIALS: Helpful implementation checklists for each chapter, plus practical tools such as a planning matrix, student and staff surveys, needs assessments, school improvement plans, and bullying reporting forms.
