I scoured the internet for a list of bullying vocabulary words that I liked. Maybe that’s the speech therapist in me but I couldn’t find a list to please me, so I made my own Kathie’s Top Ten List of Bullying Words.
THIS IS WHERE YOU START TEACHING PEOPLE ON THE AUTISM SPECTRUM ABOUT BULLYING because these are the keywords that I feel are important for our people with ASD to know. They are also words that are important for parents and all professionals to know and understand.
