Autism survey results

Chris Bonnello, author of the Autistic Not Weird blog, wrote and advertised a survey a few weeks ago.  He received 477 responses, some of which surprised him, others were very predictable. Questions were across a range of topics, including public understanding of autism, willingness of Autistic people and/or family members to discuss autism with others, school accommodations, religion, language preferences (person with autism vs Autistic, and the use of mild/moderate/severe/high-functioning as descriptors), maths abilities, cure, vaccination, and whether autism has taken away or added to the respondent’s life.
