One thought on “Brain Anatomy of Individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (Part 1 of 3)

    Please, please stop writing articles that promote the myth that Autism is a “disorder”. It’s NOT. Most clinicians and people who are autistic (for information I am both) understand nowadays that it’s simply a neurodiversity. By promoting studies such as this you’re promoting a dangerous view that autistic people’s brains are different, but not in a good way, and that we need to somehow ‘cure’ autism, which we don’t. Having said that I see you also promote the use of ABA which is a form of abuse akin to gay ‘conversion therapy’. Both ‘therapies’ (I use the term loosely) are dangerous, damaging, can leave people with PTSD, are abusive, and are quite simply unnecessary and don’t work. If you want to ‘cure’ anything I suggest starting with your ignorance of neurodiversity and familiarise yourself with modern-day thinking, and start listening to the voices of #ActuallyAutistic people.
