A still from the film "Bully."

 

Autism Speaks Combats Bullying

A recent Interactive Autism Network survey found that 63% of 1,167 children with autism spectrum disorder surveyed, ages 6 to 15, had been bullied at some point in their lives. We're proud to be part of the community promoting the new documentary film "Bully." Visit our Combating Bullying page for tools and resources, and check out the Bully Project site to learn more, and find out what you can do to help our children live in a bully free world.
