This is based off a situation that actually happened with a friend of mine who has autism who went to my high school when I found her crying in the nurse's office to escape bullies in the classroom. I support these kids with all my heart.
I have Asperger Syndrom, and I really understand this... Sadly, protest against bullying come too late for many people. Kids should learn tha pain, and open their arms to others. Many times, they juste figure that's a game, and think they didn't do bad things.
Got Bulled from 1st grade all the way till i lefafter the 4th grade.(The day we left school for summer break...I decided against goin back for 5th Grade.)I am 15 and still writing about my experience 5 years ago.(4 and 1/2 but this week will be the 5th anniversary of me leaving hell). May all my fellow Autistic Peeps be safe in school no matter what,Bullies R Bullies and they deserve no special treatment.
I know it's hard. When I was in middle-school, the kids verbally harassed me mercilessly. Both on my autism and my religion, but thank goodness after about year I finally asked for help. And things got a lot better.
I was picked on for being autistic as well. Back in 2011, I feel like I wanted to kill myself because of the gym teacher not doing anything about the teasing. But now I'm at college and I don't have to worry about that anymore.
This reminds me of when I was in my public elementary school. Whenever I wasn't around my classmates, they would always bully me behind my back because I couldn't speak clearly. I didn't realize this until my father told me a few years later after I was in private school for a couple of years.
My sister has autism AND mental retardation! Also, I have aspergers syndrome! So I know what it's like! But let me tell you something! No matter what people say about autism, it's not a bad thing. My mother is a huge supporter for austistic/special needs children. She does everything in her power to make sure children with special needs get the things they rightfully deserve. In fact, my school board has been afraid of her because she'll get furious with them if they f&%$ up when it comes to giving special needs kids what they need.
So tell your austistic friend that there are people in this world who care A LOT about people like her. Tell her that she is not a freak... but rather, that she is truly special.
I can sooooo realite to this. I was bullied in 5-6 years. And than I say bullied I mean more than just words, it sometimes happened that they beat me up and throw me down stairs It's hard beeing bullied and even harder than you have autism.
autism is a blessing, never a curse! i know that cuz i wuz diagnosed with autism since i wuz 11, but my family always knew that.. i have been bullied alot but that never seem to bug me cuz i just smile at the bullies idiocy of acting like five year olds. hahaha! i haven't been picked on alot since 4 years.it isn't easy to be disabled though... i go to an autistic school in the afternoon then regular ed in the morning. i am surrounded by tons of autistic people. if you visit my profile, i have pics of my school.
You're a really kind person I understand how your friend feels, cause I have autism as well and I had to deal with bullies as well way back It's a stupid act to bully others because they're different, there's nothing cool or fun about it; it's just stupid and hateful
You should join this new group Unite-Our-Resistance; it's a group against bullying It's on my page if you wanna join
I support them as well, I have Asperger Syndrome and I could never get away from the bullying while I was growing up. In middle school I learned to assert myself, in turn also coming to help the other kids who were getting bullied.
Thank you a lot for spreading the awareness. IF YOU ARE BULLIED OR KNOW SOMEONE WHO IS, please ask for help until you get it, it's your very right to be helped and it's a duty for adults to help you. I'm not from the USA but I think you can get help if you write an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org ([link]). Love to you all.
I always been bullied since on the first grade and now I am 1rst year high school I am still being bullied. This guy called me ugly, I look like a man and dumb. I fought back and said he has a sharp nose :c He said I have a terrible voice, I responded "don't listen to it."
Two of my brothers are autistic, one is completely unaware to everything while the other one is alright. They are two out of triplets, while the other one is fine.
The oldest of the triplets got taken to Shelbyville Children's home for the mentally disabled when I was four about a week before Christmas. I know it sounds dumb but I DO remember him being carted off. I get to see him twice every other year.
The youngest of the triplets says that he knows he is different, and that is why people don't like him. A subsitute teacher mocked him, causing him to come home a crying wreck.
As his older sister I felt like I needed to take a stand, so when we met with the substitute I went along, and by the way she squirmed I could tell she was guilty. I wanted her to die or at least I wanted something BAD to happen to her. I prayed every night asking God to strike her down in the most painful way possible.
Then a boy at my school heard about my autistic brothers, and said that all autistic people don't deserve to live. That hit close to home and made me decide that it'd be better to just lock people out and not make many friends. I regret my decision, but things have been better.
Oh god. Bullying teachers?!?!?! What has the world come to?.... Just because someone's different doesn't mean that they're stupid or not equal to any of us. I'm an Aspie, so naturally, I'm a bit socially awkward. My mom told me recently that my dad has ADD and my uncle has dyslexia. So, it's most likely hereditary. Frankly, I could give a crud less. I'll just try to act normal while being an individual, not a cookie cutter copy of all of them. So let them come at me with their teasing and torments. And let them come at your brother with their teasing and torments. They'll all get theirs later on...and all of us shall rise victorious. I might not be seriously autistic, but I know how it feels to be singled out because we're different. Sometimes it feels like nobody feels the same, but I know exactly how you feel; when I see bullying, I step in for the victim. But of course, no one ever steps in for the outcasts because they don't give a darn. So we should all try to rise above this emotional and sometimes physical pain and try to be an advocate for all of this stupid nonsense.
My younger sister has autism, but she goes to a special school only with kids with different problems. Though they make fun, it is like a normal school and nobody is "weird".. she's happy to be there and I'm happy for her <3 It's hard when people don't understand and bully...
