In Hong Kong, more and more children have been found with autism in recent years.. These children often have more obstacles than others in their growth, especially in school life. But in fact, the obstacles and injuries that children with autism encounter during their growth may depend more on the tolerance and acceptance of the public. As long as we have a positive perspective against the future, even small packages can come with best things.
A study published in “journal Autism” interviewed 1,167 children aged 6 to 15 with autism, and 63% said they had been bullied. The research team deliberately visited autistic children and normal children who have been bullied in the past month. As a result, 12% of normal children have answered yes, while children with autism have nearly tripled 39%!This study also provides a data worthy of reference. The most popular type of school of bullying that happens on children with autism is the mainstream public school. Therefore, it is quite urgent to effectively deal with bullying and help children with autism enjoy inclusive education.
All over the summer holiday, many parents will consider enrolling various classes for their children so that they can stretch their mind and body. However, for students with autism who lack of social and communication skills, they are more likely to be excluded or bullied in class or other social places. They may not even be able to tell whether they are being bullied or not. They may misunderstand those people who bully them as their friends and don’t know how to deal with or protect themselves. Therefore, parents should not only worried about their children’s interests and academic needs, but also to understand their psychological needs, and establish a good parent-child relationship and mutual respect communication habits, so that they have the will to talk to their parents, a mile to a smile.
