What is everyone's opinions on labeling autistics by function, such as high-functioning and low-functioning? I am at the moderate level, which I equate to being high-functioning in terms of being able to mask well but needing daily support at home because I get so exhausted from masking. However, if I never had to mask I probably wouldn't need daily supports, probably not once a month, more than that, but definitely not daily. I have heard mixed opinions on whether it is good or bad to label autistics based on function.
