LEARN MORE ABOUT THE PROJECT
What is disablist bullying?
Disablist bullying may be carried out by both those with and without a disability and includes similar types of bullying such as physical, verbal, gesture, exclusion and extortion bullying.
Did you know?
The National Disability Authority (NDA) found that individuals with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND), are more likely to be bullied that individuals without SEND.
Exclusion vs Inclusion
People with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities are often excluded in and outside social situations because people don’t understand a person’s disability.
Disablist bullying is harmful as it is based on prejudice and targets may not know how to seek support or express what they are experiencing.
