Bullying and Harassment of Students With Disabilities: Practical Guidance on Prevention and Response

Price: $250.00


Presented by Dave Richards, Esq.

The increasing severity of bullying incidents and disability harassment over the past few years has heightened parents' concerns — and sparked numerous Office for Civil Rights' investigations into school district procedures.

School attorney Dave Richards explores districts’ obligations to protect students from bullying and harassment based on disability as part of and in addition to their broader anti-bullying and harassment efforts. Through examples in cases and OCR Letters of Findings, Dave highlights practices that prevent or reduce bullying and harassment, types of conduct with which the school should be concerned, and the options for an appropriately scaled response. You also find out when the IEP team should get involved.

You and your staff will learn what to do — and what not to do — in these situations:

  • The allegations of harassment are vague and no bully or harasser can be identified
  • This is my second conversation with the same bully/harasser about the same conduct
  • The harasser and victim are both students with disabilities
  • The harasser or bully is an employee or parent volunteer
  • And more
