It’s certaintly true, as Elle Loughran writes, that “we should encourage more qualitative, open-ended research that seeks input from autistic people and establishes a firmer basis for future studies”. Why, then, does she only focus on work that doesn’t reflect this, and not direct readers to research and researchers (e.g.) that do? That’s a real missed opportunity to expose Spectrum readers to exactly the sorts of work and the sorts of researchers Loughran says should be a priority.
