TERMINOLOGY: Throughout these pages, you will read terms such as autistic adults, children with ASD, etc. For a clear and concise explanation about terminology, I refer you to Jim Sinclair's excellent essay titled Why I dislike person-first language. For a longer discussion with related links, also read Lydia Brown's essay on identity-first language and person-first language on the ASAN (Autistic Self Advocacy Network) website.
