Best Answer

You capitalize autism either when grammatically correct to do so (at the start of a sentence, for example), or when talking about Autistic people or the Autism community. As autism is an identity it means that when talking about us as people or as a community you will capitalize the word. It's similar to deaf/Deaf - 'when a person is deaf you refer to them as a Deaf person'.

For example I am diagnosed with autism, thus I am an Autistic person.
