I apologize if this has been discussed already, but I have to say, I really dislike some common terms such as High Functioning and Low Functioning. It sounds as if one is better than the other, and I don't feel as if either description gives an accurate picture. But when it seems necessary to describe your child's type of autism, what else do you say? I suppose I could say mild autism, but not sure that's much better.
The other I can't stand is NT or neurotypical. But again, what do you say?
I don't mean to criticize people for using these terms, and I use them myself. I just don't care for them and was curious if anyone has better alternatives. Thanks!
