NEURODIVERSITY-AFFIRMING LANGUAGE
This resource combines preferences from the autistic community today – not only language, but also neurodiversity-affirming and strengths-based language. Which means, we do not discuss autism as a major problem, illness, or terrible disease.

The goal for this lesson is for students to learn more about their own differences, strengths, and needs. They also get to practice self-advocacy by learning about a topic and deciding how they feel about it right now and want to navigate the future.

*We use identity-first language in all of our resources due to autism community preferences – you can read more about our language policy here). And following suit, we break the myth around the puzzle piece and person-first language.
