The purpose of this study was to examine if students with speech and/or language disorders were more likely to experience bullying than children with normal developmental milestones and speech. There were fifty parents sought to respond to a survey (by using Survey Monkey) about their childâ€™s specific disorder, school size, age, bullying experiences, etc. Twenty-two responses were obtained for research. Results of the research showed that about 50% of parents felt their child had been bullied because of their speech and/or language problem while 50% of parents felt that their child was not bullied or the bullying they experienced was age related and normal.
