The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of a bullying prevention program when coupled with abilities awareness training as they apply to student awareness. An abilities awareness component was developed and implemented as a supplement to Safe School Ambassadors, an existing bullying prevention program for 5th graders at an elementary school in Southern California.
One aim of the research was to determine whether students who experienced both programs exhibited increased awareness of the needs of students most often targeted by bullying. The results revealed that not only was awareness increased but also that participating students understood how to intervene effectively and possessed confidence in taking action.
One conclusion of the study is students who have experienced the Safe School Ambassadors program integrated with an abilities awareness component have contributed to the ongoing greater integration of the special and general education population currently attending the school.
