Outcomes of bullying intervention for individuals with intellectual disabilities.

Submitted by partner on Tue, 02/27/2018 - 14:37
Description
Although existing research is scarce, evidence suggests that children and adults with intellectual disabilities may be at increased risk of being bullied (as they are for maltreatment generally) and possibly more likely than those without disabilities to also engage in bullying behavior. Despite significant clinical interest in bullying, this research focuses on the outcomes of bullying intervention for individuals with intellectual disabilities.
