Bullying and Autism

In honor of Bullying Prevention Month, it is important to shine the spotlight on bullying and autism.  Bullying can happen to anyone, regardless of whether they have a disability or not. However,  children with disabilities ( particularly autism) may be more likely to be victimized because of their differences. Because autism is the fastest growing disability category thus far, we need to create opportunities for awareness, especially among school-age children.  It is important that we advocate for programs like character education to build positive relationships and support acceptance among peer groups.
