Baltimore Survey Launched to Measure Bullying Impact on Children with Autism

Camping inside is suitable for Abby Mahoney and her younger brother Aidan.
The tent is a place for them to play.
In about 10 minutes, we watched as Abby created animation on Post-it notes. Her talent seems endless, but unfortunately it hasn't been celebrated among many of her peers.
Abby was diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome when she was 8 years old. She is on the high end of the autism spectrum, above her grade level in academics, but slower to develop social skills.
In fourth grade, she says bullying became the norm in her Baltimore County school.
