The Autistic English Dictionary (AED) is the principal dictionary of the English language for autistic people. In order to be comprehensible to autistic people, the English language needs to be updated with explicit definitions of the continuously shifting unspoken semantics that neurotypical speakers attach to specific words and phrases.

My family is aware of my autism. It doesn't mean that they accept it. I was aware of my autism. It didn't mean that I accepted it. Society is aware of autism. It doesn't equal acceptance in society.
