My Name is David, I Have Autism and I Was Bullied

In a national survey, over 200,000 children get bullied ever day in our schools across our country. 62% of students with disabilities are often victimized as opposed to nearly 27% of the general population. One Study found that almost half of adolescents With an Autism Spectrum Disorder have been victimized and more often than not, bulling goes un-detected until it is too late. This book will help parents, students, and teachers understand what bullying is and how it affects children with Special Needs such as Autism, Aspergers, ADD, ADHD and Dyslexia just to name a few. Learn to speak to children and students about bullying at home and in the classroom. If your child is being bullied, there are ways to help him or her deal with it on a day-to-day basis and lessen its lasting impact. And even if bullying isn't an issue right in your home right now, it's important to discuss it so your children will be prepared if it does happen one day. Children with "Hidden" disabilities have a harder time adjusting due to some social skill deficiencies so we must be proactive in helping to teach our children coping skills. It's also important to take bullying seriously and not just brush it off as something that children have to "tough out." Adults and children alike need to be aware that children with disabilities often are made out to be the bully when all they are trying to do is "fit in." The effects can be serious and affect children's sense of self-worth, self-esteem, and future relationships in life. In severe cases, bullying has contributed to tragedies, such as many school shootings at all school levels- elementary, middle, high school, and even today's college campus.
