Patterns of Internet Use and Risk of Online Victimization for Youth with and without Disabilities
Wells, Melissa; Mitchell, Kimberly J.
Journal of Special Education, v48 n3 p204-213 Nov 2014
Findings from a nationally representative telephone survey of 1,560 young Internet users revealed youth receiving special education services in schools were more likely to report receiving an online interpersonal victimization in the past year, even after adjusting for other explanatory factors. These findings suggest that special education staff and other professionals should assess students for risk of online victimization.
