Bullying in schools : a study of the extent of bullying of the disabled and the reason hereto (English)
Abstract [en]

Bullying in schools is a big social problem in today’s society and it affects the children exposed in a very negative way. The aim of my paper is to find out if there is a group of students who gets bullied by other students more often than others. I want to study if children with functional disabilities get more bullied than children without functional disabilities and,if this is the case – why is it so?

My questions are:

  • Are children with functional disabilities particularly exposed to bullying?
  • How is bullying prevented?

In order to get my results I have made three qualitative interviews and analyzed two debate articles concerning bullying of the disabled. My theoretical approach emanates from social constructivism where relations between people are built on lingual interaction. Furthermore, I have raised the topic of social development. In order to achieve a healthy social development it is important that children feel that they belong to a group. In my paper, I have come to the conclusion that children with functional disorders probably are bullied more often than other children, especially those with a mental disability. A child with a social divergent behaviour is often considered strange among other children, and this may be a reason for bullying. School staff must prioritize their efforts to actively prevent bullying in their daily work. According to my opinion they must pay special attention to those who bullies when they carry out this preventive work.
