Autistic children more likely to be involved in bullying – study | Society | The Guardian

Children with autism are more likely to be bullied by both their siblings and their schoolmates, meaning time spent at home is no reprieve from victimisation, according to a new study.

Researchers also found that children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) are more likely to be both the victims and perpetrators of sibling bullying compared with those without autism, referred to in the study as “neurotypical” children.
