Autism is a condition that affects how someone learns and how they relate to people and stuff that goes on around them.
There’s some really useful info about autism on Childline’s website, check it out in their ‘Life Issues’ section. It explains what it’s like to have autism, and has some very good advice about what to do if you are being bullied for having autism. You can also get support and advice from other young people about autism on the Childline message boards.
Young people with autism often need extra support to be able to get the most out of school. Enquire can give advice about this – call us on 0845 123 2303 or email us via our website.
