Following our pilot study in early 2014 (see below), we are now developing further research into autism and bullying/abuse, starting with the experiences of autistic adults in the UK; if you are autistic and would like to be involved (you don’t need a formal diagnosis), please sign up to our “research” newsletter here. Alternatively, look out for more information here in the new year.

In January 2014, Life on the Spectrum conducted a random online-survey, asking 100 autistic people (with both formal and self-diagnoses) if they had been bullied/abused, what type of bullying/abuse they had experienced, and who had perpetrated it. More detailed findings will be published at a later date, but this graph shows the preliminary results:
More results to follow.
