Identity-First Language

Identity-first language.

 

Autistic UK strongly support and believe in the use of identity-first language ( that is, using ‘Autistic Person’ instead of ‘Person with Autism’), as does the Autistic community in general. This is why we are proud supporters of  Identity-First Autistic and their campaign to increase the use of identity-first Language, in line with the wishes of the Autistic Community.
