Students with special needs are particularly vulnerable to sexual abuse due to difficulties in communicating, disclosing, and protecting themselves from predators. Special needs students are at risk of sexual abuse by predator teachers and staff, as well as other students who have difficulties with boundaries and self-control. Students with special needs, therefore, require that those who are entrusted with protecting them do everything possible to ensure their safety. Unfortunately, that is not always the case, and time and time again we see special needs schools cut corners and make unsafe decisions for the students who need the most protection.
