I’m Sue Gerrard. I am the parent of a child diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder. I trained as a biologist, psychologist and primary teacher. My research into autism has raised questions about the concept of autism in particular, so-called mental disorders in general, and how scientists form their theoretical models.
The first four posts in this blog were originally published on my blog about autism what is autism anyway? I started this blog because of of my concerns about the models of child development currently used in children’s services.
