In the first of a new series of discussions, we’re going to have one on the topic of how autistic people refer to themselves. The discussion will look at identity-first language (autistic person) and person-first language (person with autism) and look at the merits and flaws of both.
The discussion is open to autistic adults and parents/carers/partners of autistic adults in Leeds. We promise that this discussion will be respectful and civilised. For the discussion, we will have a simple handout to explain the difference between the two.
When and where?
The discussion will take place on Tuesday 31st October from 5:30pm to 6:30pm at the Lovell Autism Hub. It’s free to attend. You can find the venue at this address:
Lovell Park Hub
