The How to Dance in Ohio team acknowledges that there are varying terms used to describe disability, autism, autistic individuals, and other subject matters in this production. We strive to reflect our understanding of the terms preferred by our cast, creative team, and autistic self-advocates. It is possible that a perspective was not heard, a term is outdated, or language has evolved. Your opinions and feedback are important to us so, email to open up the conversation if you believe there is something we missed. We’d be so grateful to hear from you!
