Life on the Spectrum Survey: Bullying, Abuse, and Autism
This survey is intended for people with autism, either formally or self-diagnosed. Our ultimate aim is to develop a plan of action to help autistic people a) identify abuse, b) deal with it effectively, and c) learn how to avoid it in the future.
NOTE: "Bullying" is commonly played down as a relatively minor issue – the kind of thing that happens in the playground – and one that is less serious than "abuse"; but in reality, bullying IS abuse, and can never be considered minor – its effects can be life-changing, even life-limiting, and for the purposes of this survey we are including all kinds of bullying in our definition of abuse.
This is page 1 of 11. The next page explains how we are defining abuse for the purposes of this survey, and the survey (10 questions) starts on the page after that. Please click "next" to continue.
