How do I deal with physically abusive parents who abuse me because I'm autistic?

I'm a thirteen year old girl, and my mom has gotten one doctor to diagnose me with Asbergers syndrome, and several others to deny that I have this disorder. I'm tired of being physically abused, and I've gone into a depression because of it. My parents have threatened to use my autism as an excuse if I tell the police that they've been abusing me, and they say they'll testify that all the pain they cause is an attempt to "control" my disorder. I'm at a loss as to what I should do.

The issue is not whether or not a doctor has said you have any conditions, the issue is whether or not you are being abused...there is no excuse for it. If your parents are abusing you, tell a doctor, a teacher, a minister, call the police, take action. You have a right to be free from abuse!

Call Child Protective Services or tell counselor. You can also call police. They can't abuse you to control disorder.

More doctors is better than one so if you tell the police they will probably believe you and if you have bruises or proof then you for sure will win

Let them hit you so hard that they leave a mark. PArents can hit kids if they dont leave marks. A mark that is left is illegal. Take a picture of it asap

Well, they often don't straight out hit me, they sometimes just drag me by the hair or put me in chokeholds, and neither of those really leaves marks. And it's not like I can just ask them to hit me harder .-.

Call child protective services now. Since the abuse is physical, you probably have bruises in several healing stages. Your condition is not an excuse to hurt you.

tell someone , but also this happened with me and my siblings we arent autistic but we told my mom she phoned social services they came and talked to us and they questioned my dad he got away with it, you should somehow film them while its happening so they cant say your lying

what you are experiencing is considered child abuse, whether you have a disibility or not. you need to go and tell your school counselor, call child protective services, or if you can't wait for them to become available, call 9-1-1 and get the police involved. you don't deserve to be abused in anyway by anybody. family or not, you don't need to torture yourself trying to keep them happy when you are the one miserable. good luck to you.

i hope your okay i had abusive parents and honestly it may not be easy once you tell a counselor or a adult they will notify the cops you will half to talk to the cops unless court order protective service will come to your house and if they feel like your uncomfortable they sometimes try to talk to you without your parents they did that to me and if it helps i live in michigan so i know how they are in the area havin going threw it depending on your report and court order they might recommend family counseling and if things dont change in the household they wont close the case especially if something happens again i just wanted to be honest usually the day you tell a adult protective service or the cops will show up hun it does kinda cause alot but in this case your safety is important and you should tell someone plz
