Online Poll: Which language are you most comfortable using?
We conducted an online poll between October and December 2105 to learn which language members of the community preferred to use when referring to autism in a person. A weakness in the poll is that it did not ask the voter to identify themselves as having autism/being autistic. In the future, a new poll should be conducted.
Until then, below are the results of the poll:
- Prefer saying: “Autistic Person” (56%, 972 Votes)
- Prefer saying: “Person with Autism” (25%, 439 Votes)
- Use both (19%, 338 Votes)
Total Voters: 1,749
