Autistic, Autist, Aspie, Aspergers, On The Spectrum or With Autism: What Language Do You Use?

Language is very important to us at Squag. It’s personal, constantly evolving, and should always be respected. Whether people identify as “being on the spectrum” or “autistic” or choose not to use any label at all, what’s important to us is how they identify.

No matter how old they are.

So what about kids? What language do they use to describe themselves and their experience? We asked our users: how do your kids identify? What language do they use?

Really interesting to see how people answered. Even more interesting to check back and see how it changes over time.
