Autism Spectrum Disorder and School Bullying: Who Is the Victim? Who Is the Perpetrator?
Hwang, Soonjo; Kim, Young Shin; Koh, Yun-Joo; Leventhal, Bennett L.
Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v48 n1 p225-238 Jan 2018
While a growing number of studies indicate associations between experiences of bullying and autism spectrum disorder (ASD), it is not clear what roles comorbid behavioral problems may play. We investigated the experiences of children with ASD as victims and/or perpetrators of bullying. Children with ASD epidemiologically ascertained participated in a cross-sectional study. Although children with ASD showed significantly increased risk for bullying involvement compared to community children, after controlling for comorbid psychopathology and other demographic factors, increased risks for being perpetrators or victim-perpetrators disappeared while risk for being bullied/teased continued to be significantly elevated. This finding will help guide medical, educational and community personnel to effectively identify children with ASD at risk for school bullying and develop interventions.
