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 counsellors 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 (Recognise, 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.

This book will help you:

• distinguish bullying from normal childhood conflicts

• develop effective anti-bullying interventions for victims, bystanders, and students who exhibit bullying behaviours

• 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 analyse data on bullying in your school so you can make data-based decisions

• get parents involved in addressing the bullying problem, at home and at school

• understand how teachers and staff may unwittingly contribute to a culture of bullying—and how to stop it

Includes 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.
