Use of Language Disclaimer
It is our belief that everyone has the right to choose the language they prefer to describe themselves, whether it is identity-first language – “I am autistic” - or person-first language – “I am a person with autism.” When working with individuals, Davis Autism Facilitators respect and use the language that the individual prefers. On our website, we cannot individualize preference in this way.
Many autistic people and advocates prefer identity-first language, because it indicates that being autistic is an inherent part of a person’s identity. Ron Davis himself also uses identity-first language, for the very same reason. Therefore, we have made the decision to use identity-first language throughout this website.
