1) Help
2) Depends. Could be more bullying. Could also be less. I got bullied horribly as a child. Had I been IDed as officially different, it might have been less acceptable to pick on me. Maybe.
3) YEs
4) Yes

That said my daughter just turned 7 and is HFA. When she was 6 her school had an autism awareness day assembly where she gave a one girl puppet show to the entire school, outed herself to everyone, and raised awareness among the students. No one picks on her. The one child who did got expelled IMMEDIATELY. Older kids try to help her when she has issues. It's nice and I'm proud of her.

It was 100% her choice to do this and I wasn't even aware until after it happened.
