Have you ever woken up in the morning, afraid of what people may say or how they might treat you at school today? this is the reality for 90% of students on the autism spectrum, this was my reality for 7 years. I went all the way through primary school afraid and ashamed of being me, I was called names, I was pushed and shoved and I was even locked in the vice principal’s office for a full day just for because I didn’t understand the concept of time. Bullying can come in many forms and anybody can be a bully, however, not everyone has the strength to stand out and be themselves. Today is the National Day Against Bullying and Violence so let us stand together as a community and put a stop to bullying by encouraging people to stand out.
