Children With Autism More Likely to Be Bullied At Home and School

Parent Interventions

Children with Autism are more likely to be bullied at school by other students and siblings at home, according to a study done by University of York. 
The study was done in a sample of over 8000 children out of which 231 had autism. At the age of 11 years, two thirds of the children with autism reported being bullied compared to half the children without autism. 
According to Dr Umar Toseeb of Department of Education, children with Autism experience difficulties with social interaction and communication that may have implications for their relationship with siblings. Bullying by siblings can have adverse effects on the Autistic child and they could experience emotional and behavioural difficulties both in the long and short term. The study also involved parents of children who were asked about the emotional and behavioural difficulties they have to undergo. They were asked whether the child was found to be unhappy, downhearted and restless.
