R the are word - helping individuals with intellectual disabilities deal with bullying and teasing

People with intellectual disabilities are often the brunt of teasing and bullying. This book suggests there are ways that we can help people with disabilities understand teasing and bullying and strategies for dealing with mean people.

People with intellectual disabilities are often the brunt of teasing and bullying. From schoolyard to workplace the teasing never seems to stop. "Just Ignore It" is usually the advice given, but is that good enough? This little book suggests that there are ways that we can help people with disabilities understand teasing and bullying. It also suggests new strategies for dealing with mean people. Further, this little book will help parents and staff better support an individual with a disability who is being teased. Until the world is a better place, people with disabilities have to be better prepared to live in it.

NB: The library resources are available for ADSA library members to borrow. Unfortunately we do not sell direct to the general public.
