Bullying, Resilience (Personality trait), Victims of bullying, Students with disabilities
While there is extensive research done on high school bullying, there is very little research on bullying in special needs high school students. Resilience levels may have an impact on prevalence of bullying behavior. In this study, high school special needs students were surveyed the Illinois Bully Scale and a shortened Connor-Davidson Resilience Scale to learn about their bullying behavior and resilience levels. The questionnaire measured four different subscales: bullying, fighting, victimization, and resilience. It was hypothesized that resilience levels will have an effect on bullying behavior measured by the Illinois Bully Scale.
