Thoughts about the autism label: A parental view

Journal of Philosophy of Education 42 (3-4):493-498 (2008)

Abstract
The number of people diagnosed with autism has risen exponentially in recent years. Are the diagnostic labels currently in use adequate to describe such a vast range of symptoms? Should we reconsider the appropriateness of the language we use to discuss autism? A mother of two autistic sons describes what the autism label has meant for her and her family.
