    Poll: Preference of Identity terms

    Apologies if this has been done before. Just curious if everyone has an Autism term they prefer to identify with. Just wanted to note, I'm not suggesting that the term IS your identity, but more of a generalized descriptive term.

    What is the difference between Asperger’s and high-functioning autism?

    Even though they are supposedly different, I often hear people on this forum use them interchangeably. So it would be helpful to know if they are differences as well as any similarities.

    Who here says the word "aspie"? And who here has ever heard that it's offensive. Can anyone tell the story behind their first introduction to the term? And if you have ever heard that "aspie" is offensive, have you heard it from others on the spectrum, or from people without this syndrome?
