This study examined the bullying of students, from ten to thirteen years old, with learning difficulties at Elementary schools. According to literary studies, there are inconsistent findings about the association between bullying and students with learning difficulties. This study aims to examine a possible different experience of bullying between students with and without learning difficulties. Differences may occur regarding to prevalence, vision or approach of bullying. The research includes a quantitative and qualitative part. The quantitative part focuses on the differences of bullying between students with and without learning difficulties. In order to gain insight about experiences and students' opinions about bullying, twenty students were interviewed. This information has been analyzed in a qualitative way. As expected results showed that children with learning difficulties are more often victims of bullying. The classified role of the culprits however did not correspond with their own perceived role. An important implication according to this study, is to make sure that here is enough surveillance at schools during every moment of the day. Also, bullying should have more severe consequences.
