Study today from Pediatrics looks at sibling bullying and it's effect on mental health.
June 17, 2013

The journal Pediatrics came out today with a study focused on sibling bullying and the affect it can have on the mental health of children and teens. The paper's lead author Corinna Jenkins Tucker referenced the impact of The National Survery of Children's Exposure to Violence in her overall report. This phone survey stated that of the 3,599 children, 32 percent experienced at least one type of sibling victimization this year. 

Bullying can happen to anyone at anytime and is an ongoing issue within our community. Autism Speaks has come out recently with a combating bullying page to help give resources to those in our community.  You can see that page here.

In addition, we have also partnered with several organizations to create a Special Needs Anti-Bullying Toolkit which you can find here
