Open peer commentary on the article “The Construction of Autism: Between Reflective and Background Knowledge” by Maciej Wodziński & Paulina Gołaska-Ciesielska. Abstract: I argue that Wodziński & Gołaska-Ciesielska’s target article appears undecided in its normative core. On the one hand, the authors speak of autism as a construct and propose a diversity perspective as an alternative and less diminishing construction than the dominant social one. At the same time, they succumb to some version of ontology in which there is genuine neurodiversity that could normatively speak against either biomedical or social constructions of autism.
