The wikiHow Autism Project aims to provide accurate, accepting, and respectful resources for Autistic people and their loved ones.


  • Provide helpful, compassionate resources for Autistic people, their loved ones, and concerned citizens of the world.
  • Promote respect for and acceptance of Autistic people.
  • Facilitate the spread of autism-friendly language.
  • Uphold the wishes and dignity of the Autistic community.

EditAutistic-Friendly Language

The Autism Project respects the Autistic community's choice of language. This means...

  • Identity-first language ("Autistic person," not "person with autism")
  • Avoidance of labels such as "high-functioning" or "low-functioning"
  • No negative or pitying language, such as "tragedy," "burden," or "crisis"

Autism includes Asperger Syndrome and PDD-NOS. These terms are diagnostically obsolete, but still used by some people to self-identify.

If you are curious about language choices related to autism or disability, read How to Write About Disability.
