Comment on Series-Educate

This item was emailed to this blog.-AR

I love the series your station is highlighting on Combating Autism. It is so important to educate everyone on autism and how differently it affects people. I only have 2 small comments. Please refer to it as a Disorder and not a disease and I feel it is important to use people first language and say a person with autism instead of autistic. This type of labeling makes it seem the person with autism is not a real person. In fact they are a real person who happens to have autism. Once again, great work and thanks for all you do.
