    Bullying is a common factor in the life of many Australian children and young people. Bullying is

    • Young people with special needs, eg autism spectrum disorder (ASD) or other disability, are
    particularly at risk
    Recommendations
    • Health practitioners should ask young patients with chronic physical, social or mental health
    indicators about their experience of bullying
    • Health practitioners should understand that school programs can be very effective to deter and
    deal with bullying if supported across the whole school
