In other news, the Interactive Autism Network is also launching a nationwide survey that will study how bullying affects children with autism. Since children with autism are vulnerable and frequent targets of bullying, IAN is looking for parents to share their stories in order to educate teachers and school administrators.
Plus, a free new iPhone/iPad app called BeSeen is now available, geared for kids 11 and up. The mobile app acts as an educational game that simulates a social networking site. Kids navigate a school year through a Facebook-like environment, learning how to interact with others in positive ways, how to protect personal and private information, and how to guard against cyberbullying.
