Bullying affects thousands and thousands of adults and children every year. Children like Sophia.

Sophia has two elder brothers, both diagnosed on the spectrum and attends a special school. She also performed a live stage dance at Autism’s Got Talent and won a scholarship through the charity at Pineapple Performing Arts.
The charity’s ‘Give Us A Break!’ campaign and founder Dr Anna Kennedy calls on all schools, colleges, workplaces and social events to join the #GUAB campaign and help to make a real change to the lives of all people affected, including people with autism and other neurological and physical disabilities, by helping people to have the courage to speak up and understand that it is not OK to bully in any form.
Anna Kennedy Online is dedicated to providing autism awareness, acceptance, training and understanding to both schools , colleges and within the community to help create a better environment so that all our children can thrive.
Anti-Bullying Week is on Monday 11th November–Friday 15th.
