Bullying is a growing issue of concern and a harsh reality facing many of today's schools. Teachers, parents, and administrators are all grappling with how best to address the problem and create a nurturing and inclusive school culture. In Bullying and Students With Disabilities, Barry McNamara presents both the relevant research and the practical tools that educators and families need to understand bullying, identify bullies and their victims, learn how to cope with bullies, and take part in the implementation of an inclusive schoolwide bullying prevention program that truly meets the needs of all students.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"It has long been known that students with disabilities are targets for bullying or exhibiting bullying behavior; this book provides information on how teachers, paraprofessionals and parents can address bullying with students with disabilities within the school wide program to meet the individual needs of the child and create a safer school environment." -- Barbara Hayhurst, Special Education Teacher
"This book is a must have for all schools. Bullying of students with disabilities is often unaddressed in many schools. This book provides sound advice and guidance to all school-based staff. It shines a light on a problem that often goes unnoticed." -- Mary Reeve, Educational Administrator
"Dr. McNamara provides an excellent reference for teachers, administrators and parents regarding bullying in schools. His thoughtful discussion of the implications for students with disabilities offers significant insights into how and why a youngster's disability may make them a target for bullying as provocative victims. Educators and parents alike will benefit from the subtle yet important distinction between a provocative victim and their bully." -- Patrick Harrigan, Deputy Superintendent

"McNamara addresses classroom and playground teasing, taunting and physical aggression aimed at atypical students. 'There is a very limited but emerging body of research that suggests that students with disabilities are more likely to be victims than their general education peers,' McNamara writes. 'Why are students with disabilities more likely to be targeted? The most obvious reason is their vulnerability.'

The book goes on to suggest how to create a schoolwide bullying prevention program, detail what every teacher should do and outline intervention and coping strategies."

-- Beth Whitehouse, Writer
