The importance of speaking up about bullying

In this guest blog for Anti-Bullying Week, Daniel, 18, who has a diagnosis of an autism spectrum condition, talks about his experiences of being bullied and the importance of speaking up about it. I remember the first time I was bullied very vividly. I was 5 years old and was playing by myself in my primary school playground because my support assistant had gone inside. Three older boys pushed me into a huge pile of leaves and started calling me names. I lay there hoping a teacher would come and save me as I didn’t know how to defend myself.
