Inclusion means a wide range of things. It can mean being accepted by other people, taking part in community life, able to lead an independent life. Or it can mean able to lead as normal a life as possible, included in the workplace, included in social/recreational activities and offered the same opportunities as others.
Unfortunately many people with autism are routinely excluded from society and prevented from undertaking these activities.
This glossary is designed to explain some of the jargon and gobbledygook used by some people when they talk about autism or research..
