Bullying at school and cyberbullying are risky phenomena that greatly affect the educational environment. young people with disabilities are more likely than their peers to experience violence, sexual abuse and bullying in schools, at home and in institutions across the European Union; they also often face violence linked to their disability, as well as other, more subtle, forms of violence, such as exclusion and isolation.
The project YAB will provide proper, innovative and continuing support to both learners with disabilities/special needs and learners without special needs and those who seek to educate/work with them in order to tackle bullying/cyberbullying issues, improve socialisation, reduce marginalisation and ease both their lives in school and their migration into adulthood, to allow them to enjoy fully rounded lives and contribute more widely to society. It will also provide support to and input for training, educators,and trainers in promoting equity, diversity, and inclusion in learning through educational institutions and wider society, via more in-depth understanding and work with individuals with disabilities, and the provision of training/educational materials.
