Autism and Bullying Podcast: Factors that Protect or Increase Risk

This month’s “Autism Matters” podcast features an interview with special-education researcher Judith Hebron on her study identifying factors that protect against or increase the risk of bullying of students with autism spectrum disorder. Dr. Hebron’s full report, in the journal Autism, is freely available here. (Also see Combating Bullying in the Autism Speaks Your Dollars@Work blog.)

Each month, Autism features a lay-friendly podcast with one of the researchers whose papers appear in the latest issue. Stay tuned for April’s podcast on employment support and barriers.
