“Autistic person” and “person with autism” is an argument that has been running since the late 1980s when advocacy groups in the United States sought to alter the way we understand people with disabilities by shaping the way we use language.
However, this debate only applies to English, surely, where we have the grammar rules that make this possible. How do other languages that don’t have the ability to change “with autism” to “autistic” etc. talk about autism? Are there any similar debates?
