10/27 A Panel Discussion on Bullying and Autism in the Public Schools

After recent discussions about bullying in the local and national press, and among the ASBG Yahoo group members, we decided to open a dialogue to begin to address this important issue as it affects those students on the Autism Spectrum. At this month’s meeting, a panel of parents and professionals will discuss the impact of bullying on students with ASD. Please join us for a discussion on how to develop a plan to meet the needs of our loved ones. Our panel participants will include:
Diann Shuffett – Fayette County Public Schools
Stacey Seal – private psychologist with Dr. Myrabeth Bundy’s office in Lexington
Tracey Boyd – parent
A report from Clemson about Bullying in U.S. Schools
Bullying of Students with Disabilities Addressed in Guidance to America’s Schools
