Bullying: An Increased Risk for Children with a Disability

October is National Bullying Prevention Month

Children who have a physical, sensory, or intellectual disability are at an increased risk of bullying due to stigma, negative traditional beliefs, and misunderstanding by other children. They face an increased risk of violence, teasing, and harassment.

The Described and Captioned Media Program is a partner with PACER's National Bullying Prevention Center, and offers several described and captioned videos on the topic of bullying, freely available to DCMP members.*
