    Are you an Autistic or a Person With Autism?

    There is an on-going heated debate in the autism community, mainly between self-advocates and parental advocates on whether to identify as “autistics,” “autistic people,” or “people with autism.” This is not an argument about semantics by people who are excessively sensitive to political correctness, but rather an important discussion about how autistic people and their advocates want to identify themselves and be identified by others. The tricky part of this argument is that ultimately, both sides are on the same side, they just have a fundamental disagreement about the most empowering and respectful terms of identification.

These findings could lead to more accurate and objective means of diagnosing autism than the current behavioral methods of evaluation.

    Are You Sure It's Autism?

    Researchers from the University of California, Davis, MIND Institute released findings that some children who with an autism diagnosis may actually have a genetic deletion disorder. The misdiagnoses stem from similarities in developmental delays and social impairments common to both autism and the deletion of gene 22q11.2.
