However how do you tell if you’re being bullied. A person with autism may find it hard to tell. For example at what point of someone joking around turn into bulling, or does accidently being knocked into = being attacked. It is important to learn the difference in order to protect yourself and be able to ask for help and support if you are being bullied. If an autistic person tell you they are being bullied, please listen to them and show that you have listened and act upon their concerns, if you feel that what has happened does not account to bulling them explain why to them but encourage them to come and ask for help if they are being bullied.
