I'm signing because I have Aspergers Syndrome, diagnosed at 13. I was horribly bullied and no one stood up for me when I needed it. I hope we can protect all autistic children from bullying and support them in future cases.

My daughter who is now in P7 has been bullied throuhout her years in primary school, and I feel it has stolen some of her childhood. She is undergoing assessment for possible autism at the moment. Sadly, I feel that the school has taken on the attitude that if she has a condition like autism, bullying is just to be expected.

I have a mild case of Aspergers' myself, and I definitely agree that bullying autistic people (perhaps with no mercy) counts as pure prejudice, just like racism, homophobia and even anti-semitism.

People are treating my child like normal child. Anywhere she goes people think i am over protective. They don't understand they are bullying & discriminating & harassing a child & me psychologically making negative comments. Treat a child with respect & treat like a human being.

My child is suffering with Autism. Court cases going on. My husband & his family abused a child a lot. I put the court case against him. However, Social workers & professionals involved & even in the school child is not getting proper care. Everything doing not in her favour & not getting her legal rights. Discriminating against child& me. Becuase of community, it's too difficult to deal with life involving social services. I don't want anyone can take a decision on my child care. My child has got lack of mental capacity that, only as a mum i know what her needs are.

I need a help to protect the child. Her life is in danger with her dad & social services.

Thanks for adding your voice.
