Why do you use “autistic person” rather than “person with autism”? 

You are probably aware of the debate in the autism community in recent years over identity-first (“autistic person”) versus person-first (“person with autism”) language. 

 

Many in the autism community have a preference for identity-first language.  They feel separating the diagnosis from the person can contribute to a stigma in regards to autism. 

 

We are aware many parents and professionals feel person-first language is the most respectful way to speak about individuals on the autism spectrum. 

 

As an organisation, we wish to be led by the individual on the autism spectrum as well as their family members. We feel it is our responsibility to represent as accurately as possible the wishes of the autistic community. 

 

In our communication, we have decided to use identity-first language such as “autistic children” or neutral terms such as “people on the autism spectrum” or “individuals who have an ASD diagnosis” rather than person-first language, individuals with ASD/autism. 

 

The website does not accept my credit card. Is there another way to pay? 

At the checkout, you can pay with Stripe, PayPal or ApplePay. Alternatively, we can also invoice you and do a bank transfer.
