How To Help Your Child Being Bullied – Tips From A Parent

How to Help your Child Being Bullied- Tips from a Parent

As a mom of a child with special needs, every day is difficult. My son has ADD/LD. It’s hard for me to see him struggle in school. It’s even harder to see him get bullied. It’s an experience no child should ever have to go through. Here are tips to help your child:

1. Ask your child how their day was.

2. Look for unusual behavior. (not eating, refusing to go to school)

3. Listen for excuses like, “They are my friends,” or “They were just playing.”

4. Have great communication with your child’s teacher and school staff.

5. Always make your presence at the school to resolve any issues. Be stern and get your point across.

6. Let your child know that you are there for them and that they can talk to you.

7. Have meetings with school staff and parents to resolve the issue.

I have done all of these tips myself and they have worked. Our children have to know that they are not alone. We are here for them. Bullying is not something to take lightly. No child deserves to be bullied. I wish much success to you and your child!

Parent Waitlist Program

Journey to Independence

Community-based program designed to support families on waitlist

Being an RBT for me was extremely fun because where were you going to find a place where you can be completely silly without having to worry what people thought about you? This was the only job that made me feel like I could make a dramatic difference while being myself.

I also liked to be surrounded by people that had the same goals of wanting to help kids and the teamwork made the job much easier and more enjoyable.

Change and progress was the ultimate goal for our kiddos. The early intervention program was seriously only a miracle because I saw changes in the kiddos that from day one, you wouldn’t even recognize who they were.

Changes from being able to utter 3-4 words where they can only make a syllable from when they started, the behavior decreases in which kiddo that used to engage in 30-40 0 self-harm to only half, learning how to wait during games, table work where they use to swipe and drop to the floor if they had to.

My favorite was when the parents would tell us what amazing progress they were making at home. I used to tear up and felt for these parents so much because it was already difficult for them and now, they can trust and rely on ABA and the therapists knowing their goal was ours.
