Is there ableist language or behavior?

This category refers to use of slurs, demeaning language, or abuse of neurodiverse and disabled people. This includes using "autistic" as an insult. This category is important because mocking disabled people or comparing their conditions to being bad is an ableist trope found in many forms of media that feed into a stereotypical narrative.

A big part of the show is not only the ups, but the downs of being autistic, which includes dealing with ableism throughout the show

A character is repeatedly insulted as "stupid," "idiot," and "retarded." He is taken advantage of in multiple ways for being developmentally disabled. Another character is referred to as a "loon," and yet a third character is always called "Crazy JB."

A woman is considered by many other characters to be crazy. They call her "mad," discount things she tells them, and attempt to prevent her from leaving her house. Separately, a mentally challenged man is harshly berated for not following instructions.

Sort of, in an unavoidable mission in chapter 3. The player's character has to pretend to be a "bit slow" and "quick to anger," basically implying he has a mental defect that makes him prone to violence and murder.

a main character has leg problems and needs a cane to walk. there are a few instances where ableist language is used on them i think but one that i remember better is a time in the first book, while in a cell, when a character calls them a word in their native language that the mc understands before the characters tries to translate thinking that "he needn't have bothered" since the mc knew that word in enough languages to understand what they were called

Yes, but it's more of an in-universe thing. Agatha and Maggie call each other a polish word that basically means R***rd in the second episode. Still, avoid this scene cause it's a jumpscare and a terrifying one at that.

yes, but it is resolved. the main character, monty, is extremely privileged and likes the idea of finding a "cure" for percy, who has epilepsy. this, and the subsequent actions monty takes, are a frequent part of the book until percy finally explains that he doesn't want a cure for his illness. this behavior is prominent in the book, but there is a learning arc that comes after it and the author's point is that disabled people do not have to want or need a "cure" to be happy.
