Yes, you must raise it with the boy's mother. If it turns out you mis-interpreted the situation, then just apologise. Do you know the mother at all? If it's just the beginning of bullying by the men in the bus then better to nip it in the bud now than wait for things to escalate.
I would tell too. There is no need for him to be yelling at him and certainly sounds like bullying. Would say in my experience most escorts for buses arent normally from child led backgrounds or have much SN experience.
Talk to the parents, let them know you've seen this. Some awful stuff happens in these situations - however, I'm pretty sure that a lot of the "jokes" I share with my residents (ok, i know, slightly different) could be very easily misinterpreted when seen from the outside.
How would you react to seeing someone pushing a wheelchair telling the clouds to piss off? You probably wouldn't realise we were talking to the clouds - but Dude finds it hilarious.
More than one of my residents likes a hug every so often, or will kiss my hand. Definitely open to misinterpretation by a bystander.
I'm not downplaying your instincts, just advising you to tread carefully. If there is something untoward happening, then SS will have procedures in place to investigate.
PS It's not generally a good idea to playfight with someone with ASD as most will have trouble differentiating between that and hurting someone - so at the least, the escort should knock it on the head for those reasons!
Being the mum of two children with autism, I would be more than happy if you had seen this and came to me to let me know your concerns, in fact I would respect you tremendously, even if it turned out to be nothing. For your own peace of mind, please say something. If I were you, I would print out your message on here as it may be easier for you xxx Good luck xxxx You sound like a very caring person, I wish there were more like you around xxx
purplepdjin this sounds very different from you sharing a laugh with the adults (?) you are a carer for. I'm not sure if the people you're looking after have autism, but having a laugh with someone who has physical disabilities is different from "teasing" someone with ASD. One scenario is getting along with your clients and enjoying yourselves; the other could be abuse. I know you know this, of course, I'm just saying what the OP saw doesn't sound like it was a joke being shared by the boy.
I work with folk with a mixture of needs, at the moment adults but in the past children and teenagers.
Sorry, the point I was trying to make is that sometimes these things are merely misinterpreted - so don't call Social Services quite yet - but it's best to check it out with parents (or in my case ask me directly!)
