About

Overview

Teens with disabilities are at an increased risk of being bullied and need help addressing and overcoming the unique forms of bullying they face. This insightful resource combines information about basic protections under the American with Disabilities Act, examples of the ways in which teens with disabilities are bullied, and effective anti-bullying strategies to address this issue. The emphasis is placed on safety, and letting students know where to turn to assert their rights. When neurodivergent teens and those with physical disabilities have the tools to combat bullying, they can feel empowered and thrive in all aspects of their lives.
