autism spectrum

Our preference is to use person-first language and refer to a person or group as being on the autism spectrum rather than with autism spectrum disorder. On second reference, on the spectrum can be used. However, it is acceptable to refer to someone with autism spectrum disorder or with autism if the individual or group prefers it.
