Bullying, disablism, harassment, abuse, mobbing - these are all terms used for actions and words that hurt and belittle other people. Bullying is reported to occur everywhere, but appears to be more often experienced by people with disability (Christensen et al. 2012; McGrath et al, 2010). Up to two-thirds of people with intellectual disability have been bullied at some time, both as children and as adults. People with intellectual disability are sometimes the ones doing the bullying.
