Social-Emotional Learning Program to Reduce Bullying, Fighting, and Victimization Among Middle School Students With Disabilities
Dorothy Espelage, Chad Rose, & Josh PolaninHammill Institute on Disabilities
DOI: 10.1177/0741932514564564

In this randomized clinical trial, students with disabilities who received three years of a social emotional learning (SEL) middle school curriculum demonstrated decreases in bully perpetration in comparison to students with disabilities who did not receive the curriculum.  SEL should be given to all students in middle schools.
