Disabilities and Vulnerability to Bullying

A disability refers to physical or mental impairments that make daily routines and activities more challenging. Children with disabilities may require assistance from a person, animal, or a special device. A physical disability may occur as a result of chronic illness, being overweight, having been in an accident, or being born with certain features. Mental disabilities may result from birth, sustained exposure to stress, drug abuse, or various other causes.
