As a team we are committed to being as accessible as we can be, this includes the language and terminology we use. In line with recommendations from the National Autistic Society (
How to talk and write about autism
) we have agreed this with the people who use our service when talking about neurodiversity. We use “identify first” language such as “autistic person/ has an autism diagnosis”, we recognise autism as a form of neurodivergence and welcome feedback about our use of language and this website.
We also have the following 'buttons' at the top of our website:
This button enables you to dim the colours on the website.
The button enables the language to be changed to a chosen translation on the website.
