Is there autism specific abuse?

When an autistic person is abused specifically because they are autistic. This can include parents who openly complain about their child being "gone" or "different" than they want, bullying by others, medical-related abuse, and parents/relatives/others killing an autistic person because they're "sick" of their autistic behavior.

Not in the game itself, but you might encounter players who say nasty things about autistic people if playing on multiplayer/online.

There is one pretty autistic-coded character who is manipulated and taken advantage of by another character but there is no direct ablism

the only thing that really comes to mind are a few instances of extreme (autism-specific) ableism, so make of that how you will

No, but main character is teased and hated by some for actions and characteristics that can be associated with neurodivergency (talking too much, always stating his thoughts etc). But neurodivergency is never a topic on the musical.

There are no autistic characters in the show. The closest is Judah, who is coded as autistic (likened to the main character of "Rain Man" at one point) who is called "weird" at one point in S4E9, but the person who does this is lashing out and doesn't really mean it.

There’s an implied neurodivergent character who is ostracized by his family but not specifically because of his neurodivergent traits. Although, his family does refer to him as weird and creepy and references his way of speaking (stuttering, muttering, mumbling…) as a negative.

In childhood, Jules is admitted to a psychiatric hospital. (Ep 4. Only ends 8 mins in). The conditions she's kept in can remind Autistics of trauma in ABA therapy, psych wards, and other forced therapies. I'm Autistic and it was an intensely triggering sequence. SPOILERS: The plot info in the sequence so you can skip: Her mom was the one that admitted her. Jules SHs. It's said she got better and could leave the ward after a bit. Her mom got worse. Her dad quit his job to be closer to home, Jules loves her dad. Jules started to transition at 13 (shown with help of dad, no mom), and began having sex with older, cis, white men at 16 in secret. At 8:07, the psych sequence ends.

A character who is considered by some to be autistic-coded/implied to be autistic is very obviously least favorite child and mistreated by his parents, but he is not canonically autistic and there is no explicit mistreatment due to autism.

It’s difficult to unravel Powder/Jinx’s psychology as there are solid arguments to be made for cPTSD, autism, schizophrenia, ADHD, Bipolar Disorder, BPD, trauma-induced psychosis or some combination of these. Suffice it to say, she is likely neurodivergent and she is at times mistreated for traits and behaviors that are often associated with autism.
