Language Position Statement

Language is a powerful way to promote positivity and to influence perceptions, attitudes and beliefs. Language preferences are deeply individual.

As an organisation, Autism SA is continuously listening and reviewing the use of language relating to autism to ensure that current views are represented in our written and spoken language.

We strive to identify and reflect an individual’s language preferences whenever possible.

To ensure we are reflecting the diverse language preferences of the Autism SA community in our published works and other material, Autism SA as an organisation will ensure that processes are in place to include each individual client’s preferences.

More generally, in our published material and other work, we have developed an Autism SA Language Guide which has recently undergone an update. This guide aims to support all staff in using language around autism that is endorsed by Autism SA. In addition, we have updated our Autism SA Language Position Statement which shares our language position publicly.

We encourage everyone to take time to review the guidelines and to use the considered terminology in spoken and written language. We are committed to continuously seeking feedback from the Autistic, autism and Autism SA community, including our workforce. Please direct all feedback to feedback@autismsa.org.au
