How to help a child with ASD who may be being bullied.
Unfortunately, children with autism are especially vulnerable to bullying. A 2012 study by the Interactive Autism Network found that a total of 63% of 1,167 children with ASD, ages 6 to 15, had been bullied at some point in their lives.
Autism Speaks is committed to providing resources and tools to help take a stand against bullying, so that no child or adult on the spectrum experiences the terrible feeling of being bullied at school, at work or out in the community. Click on the link below to visit their webpage.
