Autism Empowerment Radio welcomes back Autism Spectrum advocate and communications coach, Jack Ori to talk about what to do if your child with Asperger Syndrome is being bullied.

Bullying is a widespread problem among all children. Children who are perceived as "different" such as those with Asperger Syndrome are particularly vulnerable to bullying because their differences are noticeable and they might not know the correct way to handle it. As a parent, you want to encourage as much independence as your child is capable of, but you also may need to advocate for him or her in order to put a stop to bullying.

Tune in to learn strategies regarding how to teach your child what bullying looks like and how to effectively communicate and advocate when bullying does happen.
