Neurotypical? Who exactly?

Neurotypical? Who exactly?, by Sharon Morris (The Tumultuous Truth blog).  Another post about language (some of the comments are interesting too) – if “neurotypical” is used to mean “not autistic” – then where do people with mental health diagnoses, brain injuries etc fit?  I’m starting to think that “not autistic” is probably a more accurate descriptor.
