Many autistic children are going back to school this week. Anna Kennedy OBE founder of a national autism charity has been contacted by parents where their children are refusing to go to school because of bullying at such an early stage of this academic year.

Anna shared: “Schools must take action so that children diagnosed with an autism spectrum condition feel safe in lessons and at break times. Autistic children are seen by their parents and carers as vulnerable to bullying. ‘Give us a Break’ is Anna Kennedy online anti bullying campaign. She calls on all schools and colleges to be particularly aware of the bullying that autistic students experience at break times and to provide positive activities that keep them safe.

Many autistic students need ‘structured activities’ which are currently seriously lacking at break times in schools. Many parents and carers said they would embrace positive activities as a constructive way of combating the bullying of their children.

For autistic children and young people, break and lunch times in schools and colleges can be particularly daunting and can put them at risk of bullying. Anna Kennedy Online the UK Charity is to continue raise awareness of bullying of children with autism in schools and colleges.”

Anna shared: “Too often these children are seen as the problem; as not ‘fitting in’ or ‘settling down.’ We want to see all schools take decisive action to create environments and cultures where all children feel safe, accepted and supported without fear of bullying.

Autistic children should not be allowed to coast along without appropriate support until anxieties become so great that it leads to challenging behaviour both at home and school. Training, awareness and acceptance is key”.
