If your child is being bullied, time is crucial. Act as soon as possible, by informing the school principal and other support staff. Humiliation, distress, fear, anxiety, and depression are the constant companions of a child who is bullied. These reactions can lead to harmful, shocking and unexpected behavior from an otherwise shy or timid child. When the bully targets a student because of the student’s disability, that is a civil rights violation.

What is bullying?

School bullying includes some or all of the following:
  • An intention to harm
  • Victimization by verbal or physical threat
  • Repetition
  • Power inequity
  • Provocation.
