Thursday 30th April – Update

We’d like to draw your attention to the following research project which is being carried out by the University of York.
We know only too well how so many of you have been bullied, and thought this might be an opportunity for you to share your experiences.

Autism and Bullying in Childhood Online Study

We are looking to recruit individuals who have a diagnosis of Autism in an online study looking at their experiences of bullying in childhood. You will be eligible to take part if you are:

  1. over the age of 18
  2. have a formal ASD diagnosis by professionals and/or those who have self-identified.
  3. have a good command of the English language
  4. have no significant visual and hearing problems that will prevent you from using a screen

The study can be accessed through the following link on a smartphone or computer. It should take between 30 and 45 minutes to complete and looks at your experiences and perception of bullying in childhood.
Please note that if you choose to take part, you may withdraw at any time during the process of completing the questionnaire. No personally-identifying information will be collected and all data, therefore, will be fully anonymous. Your answers will be treated with the strictest confidence.

Thank you for taking part. Your contribution is greatly appreciated.

If you have any queries about the study, please contact
Dr Miles Rogish ( or Dr Melanie Forster (

    Yes I have been bullied abused and ostracised. I’m also the family scapegoat. It’s come to the point where I have to stay away from them.
