ABSTRACT
The article discusses the Anti-Bulllying Alliance (ABA) study which revealed that many young people with disabilities or special education needs (SEN) were not taught how to stay safe online and have experienced cyber-bullying. The study, involving qualitative focus groups with students with disabilities, learning difficulties and mental health issues, discovered that many young people are using the internet to create an anonymous persona to hide their disability.
