There is a wonderful blogger I follow, Mae, who writes, Autism Is Not the Boss. She has written an interesting post ASD terminology: ‘autistic’ vs ‘individual with autism’ As usual, since I generally have alot to say, I commented on her piece, and we had an interesting discussion about my boys.
How would they describe themselves? Which vernacular would they use? The interesting thing about my boys, though, is that they would never even think to describe themselves in terms of autism at all.
