It’s Learning Disability Week. How are we celebrating? With research, of course!
Here is our report:
This week is Learning Disability Week and Mencap wants us to help them celebrate. Mencap is a Charity that works with “people with a learning disability to change laws, challenge prejudice and support them to live their lives as they choose.” You can find out about Mencap using this website: https://www.mencap.org.uk/get-involved/learning-disability-week
Mencap says that “Children with a learning disability are often socially excluded and 8 out of 10 children with a learning disability are bullied.” We want to change this. We want all children to feel safe and included.
Eastside Community Heritage and the AbPhab Youth group designed some surveys to collect facts about bullying. The Young People’s Development Forum at Progress Press (Barking and Dagenham) helped us.
When we have completed our research we will publish a report. Teachers, parents, students and councils can learn from our research.
Please help us by completing our surveys online http://antibullyingdisability.com Or we will send you a survey to fill in through the post or via email.
