Creating Compassionate Children

Children with special needs are an easy target for bullies because of their desire to fit in and make friends coupled by their challenges in understanding social cues. More and more doors to inclusive opportunities are opening for individuals with special needs, but these very doors may also make them more vulnerable to bullying by their peers. Creating Compassionate Children TM is an international campaign designed to help students build a culture of understanding, acceptance, inclusion, and most importantly, respect. By educating children at an early age about differences and including children with special needs as friends in their social environments, research has shown that we can foster caring peer support and eliminate bullying.
