Study: Half of Adults with Autism Abused By Someone They Know

A very disturbing story from across the pond. 

LONDON — Half of adults with autism have been abused by someone they know, a new study has found amid warnings of the 'devastating scale' of neglect and abuse.

Many people diagnosed with the condition are staying at home because they are afraid of being abused or harrassed, the National Autistic Society (NAS) said today.
People with autism can find it hard to interpret other people's motivations and as a result can be taken advantage of or manipulated, the charity said.
