Children with a learning disability or a physical disability need more love and attention not the negative effects of bullying.
London, UK (PRWEB) March 15, 2014
Bullying is nothing more than aggressive behavior toward another child that takes place repeatedly for some time, however, Bullying a child because of a physical or emotional difference is called disablist bullying. Today, NoBullying releases a guide to dealing with Disablist Bullying.
The guide mentions that the sad fact is that in the United States only ten studies have been done concerning the effects of bullying on children with developmental disabilities; however, the studies that were done show that children with disabilities were two to three times more likely to be bullied than their peers without disabilities.
Researchers also found that children with disabilities worried more about the safety at school and being injured or bullied, than those students that had no disabilities. The National Autistic Society reports that 40 percent of children with autism and 60 percent of children with Asperger’s syndrome have experienced bullying.
Macartan Mulligan, Co-Founder of NoBullying.com, said, “We released this guide on disablist bullying because this is an inhumane issue that must be dealt with immediately. Children with a learning disability or a physical disability need more love and attention not the negative effects of bullying.”
He added that parents and teachers should make a point to educate the younger generations about the sad outcome of bullying online and offline. According to Mulligan, it is quite imperative to press for more firm laws condemning all acts of bullying and harassment.
NoBullying features many pages dedicated to parents, teens, teachers, health professionals as well as posts related to cyber safety and the latest news about law making concerning curbing Bullying worldwide as well as inspirational Bullying Poems and Bullying Quotes.
The website makes a habit of updating its bullying statistics and cyber bullying statistics regularly because it is essential to understand how widespread the bullying epidemic is.
