Words matter - identity first language

There is much debate in the autism community about whether to use the term "a person with autism" or an "autistic person".  Over the years, TATTS has informally asked its members what they prefer and has found that they generally prefer "autistic person" as they feel it is simply part of them.  Based on that, we try to use identity first language even though it is not favored in most academic, medical research and therapy circles.

However, we understand that this issue can generate strong opinions and emotions with TATTS members, their families and all that work with and support our organization.  Please know that we're doing our best!
