Abstract

Open peer commentary on the article “The Construction of Autism: Between Reflective and Background Knowledge” by Maciej Wodziński & Paulina Gołaska-Ciesielska. Abstract: The target article identifies ways autism is constructed by adults. Variations in these constructions offer insight into how discussions might challenge stereotypical and deficit images with a view to facilitating constructions of autism as a way of being in the world. Radical constructivism proposes that this process begins at the level of the individual.
