Two years ago in Disability Thinking: About Autism and “Labeling"
I was interested to read something I wrote touching on autism back when I had just started blogging and reading blogs about disability. This was before I had much exposure to the “neurodiversity” view of autism. I don’t think I wrote anything terribly ignorant or shameful.
In any case, I was really talking about labeling, and my feelings on that are pretty much the same today as they were two years ago. One of the articles I linked to in my last Weekly Reading List was about labeling, and I liked it because it said some of the same things I was saying in this blog post.
