How are different groups, such as ethnic minorities, asylum seekers and disabled pupils, affected by bullying?

A Scottish study (from 1998 to 2000), looked at the experiences of 26 disabled children in Scotland. The children (7 - 15 years old) had a range of disabilities and attended a mix of schools: special schools, mainstream and some were in integrated units. It was found that nearly half had been bullied in school. Most of them had coped successfully on their own with a single bullying incident, but for a few, bullying occurred daily.
