Autism versus Autistic

This is something I must admit I struggle with myself. Do I say my son has autism (as with he has autism, autism doesn’t have him) or do I say he’s autistic? Here is someone who says she is autistic.

The article is entitled “To the Person Cringing Because I Refer to Myself as Autistic” by over at The Mighty. Meanwhile, I’ll continue the discussion with myself.

Sincerely-
