Kids with special needs suffer more abuse, data finds

Children with special needs suffer more abuse than other youngsters, according to new data presented for the first time by the National Council for the Child at a conference hosted by Ben-Gurion University in Beersheba on Tuesday.
According to the council, such cases of child abuse are underreported and even concealed in Israel as some 5,000 cases are thought to occur each year but only some 700 are reported to the authorities.
In addition, only about 200 of them are being examined by specialized investigators.
