The implication in Fantastic Beasts is that this mistreatment led him to stifle his magical abilities, and between that and not being trained at all, Credence became or produced?
In Ariana's case, the abuse she suffered at the hands of the muggle kids left her emotionally scarred, magically unstable and prone to outbursts or "rages. What little we know about her outbursts wouldn't rule that out, especially when we consider that one of them resulted in her mother's death, when Ariana was just fourteen. That situation is more and more apparent when you take into account Graves' behavior and appearances throughout the film.
We first see GrindelGraves investigating a scene where something described as a dark wind recently tore through a building. Graves is clearly looking into the situation. We're meant to believe it's because he's there on behalf of MACUSA, but in retrospect, it seems just as likely that his investigation of that scene ties in with his relationship with Credence.

He's looking for the troubled kid. And, of course, he's barely able to contain his interest in Obscurus when he discovers one contained in Newt's case, which is another big giveaway. So, it's evident Grindelwald has an interest in Obscurus, which may or may not stem from his connection with Ariana Grindelwald years ago.

But Ariana Dumbledore was fourteen when she was killed. Assuming Grindelwald knew or learned what she was, wouldn't he have known that a child could be in their teens and still be an Obscurus? And if that's the case, why was he so quick to dismiss the idea that Credence is an Obscurus? It's a technicality that could be overlooked, I suppose. Credence is clearly older than fourteen, though I'm not sure exactly how old he's supposed to be Ezra Miller is in his early twenties.
And I'm kind of inclined to tentatively give Grindelwald a pass for overlooking Credence, even if he might have known better Rowling rules this Ariana Obscurus theory out. In the meantime, the connection between Grindelwald and Dumbledore is too relevant not to consider Ariana and the circumstances surrounding her life and death as potentially a major factor in this series. That brings us to the last point that should be brought up concerning Ariana Dumbledore. Who killed Ariana? There were three wizards in the room when she died, and one of them most likely knew what happened to her.
Grindelwald, as seen in "Fantastic Beasts" from behind.
Fate Fantastic by Martin H. Greenberg
Dumbledore admitted to Harry that the reason he avoided Grindelwald for years after Ariana died, was because Dumbledore thought Grindelwald knew whose spell killed Ariana. Dumbledore was terrified to learn that he had accidentally killed his own sister. So much so that he steered clear of Grindelwald. We also know that Grindelwald steered clear of Dumbledore. Or at the very least, that he kept his wrath away from the U. That part's stated in the Harry Potter books. Grindelwald causes a lot of trouble during his decades-long rise to power, but according to what Magical history tells, little-to-none of it plays out in the U.
Dumbledore and Grindelwald will face off in What happens between the Grindelwald we saw at the end of Fantastic Beasts and then, we don't know. Harry refused to ask Dumbledore whether Grindelwald ever told him the truth. He didn't want to know. So it's entirely possible that Grindelwald did tell Dumbledore how Ariana died, and given that we know the story told in the Fantastic Beasts movies will span the course of nineteen years , it seems extremely possible that this piece of information will be revealed to us at some point.
Will of Fate
At the very least, it's the only known reason why Dumbledore was keeping his distance from Grindelwald. Whether or not Ariana was an Obscurus remains to be confirmed one way or the other. But what usually seems safe to assume when it comes to the way J. Rowling approaches her writing, is that there's more to this story. And the screenplay book is available for purchase.
