"Children with special needs are inherently more vulnerable to abuse than their typically-developing peers. They may be physically or cognitively less able to defend themselves. They may be less able or unable to communicate that abuse has taken place; they may be in a classroom full of kids who are less able or unable to communicate that abuse has taken place." This story makes my heart feel as if it were physically crushed. Have your children witnessed or been victims of abuse or bullies and if so, how did you manage it with the school?
