Autism

Health Matters

Int

Teens & Adults

In this lesson, students explore five FAQs about autism. They learn some important facts and do some research about famous people on the autism spectrum.

Note: Our editors are reconsidering the use of people-first language (e.g., a person with autism) vs. identity-first language (e.g., an autistic person) in our materials. Please share your own thoughts about this in the comments of our post on inclusive language.
