Bullying, Students with Disabilities, and Federal Law - Cyberbullying Research Center Posted by Sameer Hinduja on May 6, 2015 At a recent conference in Chester County, Pennsylvania, I had the privilege of getting to know Andy Faust, who is an authority on special education law at Sweet, Stevens, Katz & Williams LLP. In particular, I was impressed by his level of expertise and intrigued by his astute observations about the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), and how some kids who are bullied – and some kids who bully others – may be entitled to the federal law’s protections as “children with disabilities.” I told Andy that no one is really talking about the reality and implications of this in my circles, and that it is worth sharing to our readership so that they can fully understand the situation. So, he and I have been going back and forth to flesh this out, and his insights are as follows:

Cyberbullying Facts - Cyberbullying Research Center Cyberbullying Facts Summarizing What is Currently Known Over the last decade, we have surveyed nearly 15,000 middle and high school students in ten different studies from over 97 different schools throughout the United States. The first two studies were online exploratory samples used to obtain a general understanding of the problem, so the numbers obtained are higher than average and not representative because they only include online teens who volunteered to participate. Our eight most recent studies, however, have all been random samples of known populations in schools so we can be fairly confident in the reliability and validity of the data obtained (click here for more information about the methodology). Overall, about 25% of the students we have surveyed over the last eight studies have told us that they have been cyberbullied at some point in their lifetimes. About 9% said they were cyberbullied in the 30 days preceding the survey.

Storytelling In Video Games May Improve Social Skills, Emotional Capacity In Kids With Autism Video games have been blamed for fostering antisocial behavior and an early sedentary lifestyle in children, but a new perspective on the games may shine a light on some key benefits. A combined research effort from Germany and Austria investigated why people enjoy playing video games and what benefits they may be providing the autism community. The study, published in the journal Social Psychological and Personality Science, found non-violent storytelling games could actually be helpful in curbing certain social aspects of autism. "The motivation to engage in and enjoy video games corresponds with principals that apply to human motivation in general," said the study’s lead author Daniel Bormann of the University of Freiburg, in a press release. The entire concept is based on immersion and the “theory of mind,” which explores how storytelling allows players to access the mental states of others. A player experiences immersion in a video game much like a moviegoer.
