There are an overwhelming number of abbreviations, definitions, slang and idioms used in autism, that it can be hard to keep up with. Use this list as a quick reference, it is in alphabetical order and has plenty of space to add information. This list originated from The Autism Community in Action, I tweaked and updated my list to match DSM-V (their list was outdated and contained DSM-IV pieces). I last updated it in February, 2020. * Note: 11 pages in length.
