Anti-ableism and scientific accuracy in autism research: a false dichotomy
It was recently argued that autism researchers committed to rejecting ableist frameworks in their research may sacrifice “scientifically accurate” conceptualizations of autism.

To illustrate our claims, we discuss several avenues of autism research that were promoted as scientific advances, but were eventually debunked or shown to have much less explanatory value than initially proposed. These research programs have involved claims about autism etiology, the nature of autism and autistic characteristics, and autism intervention. Common to these false leads have been ableist assumptions about autism that inform researcher perspectives. Negative impacts of this work have been mitigated in some areas of autism research, but these perspectives continue to exert influence on the lives of autistic people, including the availability of services, discourses about autism, and sociocultural conceptualizations of autistic people. Examining these false leads may help current researchers better understand how ableism may negatively influence their areas of inquiry. We close with a positive argument that promoting anti-ableism can be done in ...

ADHS bei Erwachsenen
ADHS bei Erwachsenen
»ADHS ist immer wieder ein Phänomen, das sich zwischen Genie und Versagen bewegt, übergangslos vom hochbegabten „zerstreuten Professor“ oder dem eloquenten Entertainer bis hin zu einem schwer gestörten chaotischen und gescheiterten Menschen, der an seinen vielen Misserfolgen zerbricht.«

Aufmerksamkeitsdefizitsyndrom
Eine Aufmerksamkeitsdefizit-Hyperaktivitätsstörung (ADHS) beginnt im Kindes- und Jugendalter und bleibt oft im Erwachsenenalter bestehen. Hinter ADHS verbirgt sich eine der häufigsten psychischen Auffälligkeiten bei Kindern und Jugendlichen. Man nimmt an, dass etwa 2 bis 6 Prozent aller Kinder und Jugendlichen unter krankhaften Störungen der Aufmerksamkeit und an motorischer Unruhe leiden.
