Autism, Bullying and Me
The Really Useful Stuff You Need to Know About Coping Brilliantly with Bullying
An empowering guide for autistic children and teens that sets out practical strategies for coping successfully with bullying.
It's not always easy to stand out from the crowd, especially if you're a teenager. There's a lot of information out there on how to deal with bullying, but a lot of it is contradictory or seems like it won't work...
But this guidebook is different! Helping you sort fact from fiction, the book looks at the different forms bullying can take and debunks commonly held myths such as "bullying makes you stronger" and "ignore it and it will stop." You'll learn techniques to clear your mind so that you can respond to bullying situations calmly and confidently and be positive about who you are. Finally, it's packed with self-empowering strategies for coping with being autistic in a neurotypical world, and practical tips so you can handle any bullying scenario.
