About Autism Hangout FEATURE PROGRAMS:

 

FEATURE PROGRAMS are a series of ongoing, continually updated, autism topics (i.e. "Key Learnings," "Beyond the Headlines", "Moving Out" or Featured Guests).

 

They are prepared by Autism Hangout Staff Reporters. We’ll keep on top of trends in the news as well as Autism Hangout’s Discussion Forums so you can quickly find the latest, current thinking on the topics and challenges that we face daily.

 

All Feature Programs have links to threads in the Discussion Forum (if you'd care to share your experience or insights with others).

Dr. Tony Attwood on dealing with Bullying


As a part of the Aspie Mentor panel discussion at the June 2014 Flying High with Autism Conference (Pensacola, FL), Dr. Attwood SKYPED in his comments on how to deal with the 17 most common stressors of people with Asperger's/HFA.  

The stressor research was the basis of the book:  Been there. Done that. Try this! (Jessica Kingsley Publishing). In the book, each chapter presents anecdotal wisdom, insights and stories by the Aspie Mentors who have learned how to deal with the stressor.  

At the end of each chapter, Dr. Attwood adds his advice on how best to succeed in overcoming the issue.  Here is a video excerpt of that wisdom.
