Uxbridge mum and charity founder Anna Kennedy OBE has launched a new anti-bullying campaign in order to prevent the targeting of youngsters with autism.
Dr Kennedy, who has two boys with autism, Patrick and Angelo, founded Anna Kennedy Online.
The autism charity is running its Give Us A Break campaign during National Anti Bullying Week, which runs from which runs from November 14 to 18.
Last year charity patron Ryan Wiggins created a touching and powerful video called Tomorrow, which went viral and hit almost 400,000 views on Youtube.
Dr Kennedy said: “For children and young people with autism, break and lunch times in schools and colleges can be particularly daunting and can put them at risk of bulling.
“Too often these children are seen as the problem, as not 'fitting in' or 'not settling down'.
“We want to see all schools take decisive action to create environments and cultures where all children feel safe and support without the fear of bullying at schools, cyber bullying, and within the community.”
Anna Kennedy and the charity have had a huge response from the public and even some major celebrity endorsements.
The team are hoping this year's video can go viral again and help spread the word to prevent people with autism from being bullied.
Dr Kennedy co-founded a school for autistic children – Hillingdon Manor School in 1999.
The school opened with 19 pupils but is now the largest of its kind in Europe and now offers around 150 children a safer learning environment.
