Autistics could also be called puzzleheads, because the symbol of autism is the jigsaw puzzle or a piece of it. Also, social interaction puzzles us.

Do you like this term? It sounds much better than jigsawheads.

Both are rubbish. Because of the original meaning of the puzzle piece. That autistics are missing a piece of the puzzle.

Yeah.....probably not a good idea, with the Autism Speaks connection and all.

The puzzle piece is their logo and many would likely associate it with them.

Autistics are people not a puzzle.
