Thoughts about the Autism Label: A Parental View
Moore, Charlotte
Journal of Philosophy of Education, v42 n3-4 p493-498 Aug-Nov 2008
The number of people diagnosed with autism has risen exponentially in recent years. Are the diagnostic labels currently in use adequate to describe such a vast range of symptoms? Should we reconsider the appropriateness of the language we use to discuss autism? A mother of two autistic sons describes what the autism label has meant for her and her family.
