WHAT DO I DO IF MY CHILD WITH SPECIAL NEEDS IS GETTING BULLIED?
Your child comes home and tells you that another child or a group of children is bullying him or her. What do you do? Unfortunately, bullying is a problem many children who are eligible for special education and related services encounter. Bullying affects much more than just academics. It affects the child’s entire life.
Should your child be the victim of bullying, we understand that you may not know what to do. These are complex matters that need to be handled promptly. You should immediately report any incidences to the principal. You should also immediately request an IEP meeting to discuss the bullying problem. It may even be necessary to call the police.
If your child is the victim of bullying, and the school district does not take the appropriate actions, contact us at (909)941-4114. There are special laws that apply to children that are eligible for special education and related services. Remember, your child does not deserve to be bullied for one more day.
