One of the risks arising from inclusion of children with specialeducational needs (SEN) in mainstream schools is the phenomenon ofinstitutional violence. Using a qualitative approach, the research identifies the main forms of violence against children with SEN: refusal to accept them in school, educational neglect, exclusion from some activities and punishment. Some of the causes of victimization are: poor material resources, insufficient training and motivation of teachers to work with children, non-involvement of parents. The article proposes several measures to prevent the phenomenon of institutional violence against children with SEN in inclusive schools.
