Dealing with Bullying

No Bullying

Having been blind since birth, I can assure you parents that your blind or visually-impaired child will be bullied. Maybe teachers and school systems are more aware than they were when I was growing up, and we do have bullying prevention programs in place, but it still happens. Nowadays there is cyberbullying to consider as well.

One of the main reasons I wrote "Your Disabilities and Finding Your Gold" is to help parents and caregivers start conversations with young children about the tough parts of having a disability -- like being bullied.
