The aim of this manuscript is summary of the implementation of a School Behavioural Engagement program to stop the low-level violence of special education children in Belfast, Northern Ireland. Action research was used in terms of the children’s participation in their identified social activities (e.g., school behavioural engagement program). Some children said, “It was a good program as it stopped them from fighting with each other” and other children said, “It was fun”. There was a reduction in hitting one another and they felt less anger towards each other. They also demonstrated some positive conduct (e.g. some children even brought their own ball from home and shared with the other children).
