People with disabilities, whether physically or psychologically impaired, often find themselves the victims of bullying.
Cases of assault, harassment, taunting, mocking and theft from those with a disability are unfortunately common. In some cases, such anti-social behaviour has resulted in more serious and sinister crimes being committed including kidnap, torture, rape and murder.
Those with a disability who are strong enough to report these crimes, as not all find themselves able to do so, are often ignored and the incidents go unpunished.
Better understanding by all, and improved training for those involved in dealing with reported disability hate crimes, i.e; Police officers, Community Police and social service staff, would go a long way to helping people within the disabled sector of society.

child with SEN can easily be exploited or fall into a ‘victim’ role. They may also return to
situations that other children would avoid.
Children with SEN may not realise that it is OK to say ‘no’ to some people who tell them
what to do. (In this case it is children, but they should also be able to say ‘no’ to some
Some children with SEN may lack confidence and may be more easily hurt or upset by
things that many children might shrug off or not notice.
Other children may notice that they can make a child with SEN get into trouble by doing
things that adults won’t notice (like staring).
Some children with SEN may believe other children’s threats literally.
School policies may require that children who have been bullied give a clear account of what
happened – with times and dates. This may be difficult for a child with a learning or
