Helping kids with disabilities cope with bullying

A new study from the University of Missouri College of Education, cited in HealthDay, has found that students with disabilities of all sorts report more instances of bullying than their normally developing peers.  They also lack the skills to counter or respond appropriately to such approaches from other students.  The recommendation is that they would benefit from specific instruction/training in coping and response skills, both at school and at home.  How often is this actually done, though?  Food for thought!
