Neurodiversity Affirming Language- Digital Download Poster

Description

This is a digital downloadable product.

This poster discusses the shift in language use towards neuro-affirming terms. The primary focus is on terms used to describe individuals with autism and ADHD, reflecting respect for neurodiversity.

  • Instead of "Person with autism/ADHD", use "Autistic/ neurodivergent person".
  • "Special needs" should be replaced with "Human needs".
  • "Non-verbal" is better expressed as "Non-speaking".
  • Instead of categorizing by "Severity or functioning levels", refer to "Autistic person with ___ support needs".
  • Replace "Tantrum" with "Meltdown/ shutdown".
  • "Red flags or warning signs of autism/ ADHD" can be referred to as "Autistic traits" or "ADHD traits".

The approach of neurodiversity affirming is also known as neuro-affirming.

This digital poster is an A4 PDF document.
