The Problem of Bullying

Bullying is a common problem in school-age children, and children with Autism Spectrum Disorder are more likely to experience bullying than their typically developing peers. Researchers at the Institute for Child Development are recruiting a diverse group of participants for an online survey to better understand the problem of bullying in children with special needs. This research seeks to learn more about patterns of bullying for children with and without special needs and also to develop effective intervention to reduce bullying. We are specifically looking to recruit parents of children with or without special needs (e.g., ASD), individuals who do not have children, as well as educators and other service providers for children with special needs. This study has been approved by the IRB and participation will take up to 40 minutes. Participants may choose to be entered into a drawing that will award $50 to each of 5 participants.
