Note about identity language: We recognize the words we use to describe and define individuals and groups of people are powerful. In most cases, TRIAD uses identity-first language (“autistic person,” rather than “person with autism”) which is preferred by many autistic people, including TRIAD’s autistic advisors. For more information read here. This is in recognition that identity-first language is a growing and important part of autism culture as it more directly appreciates the value and worth of autistic persons by acknowledging autism as a central part of identity. Further, it is in recognition that TRIAD does not treat or intervene on autism. That would be impossible. Instead, we strive to help autistic learners gain skills to support their ability to contact and maintain self-determined success, happiness, and joy. If you would like to learn more, this post on the Autistic Self Advocacy Network website is a great place to start.
