Criticisms raised by others on the spectrum

  • Ian Ford - what constitutes the essential ‘autistic difference’ is not distinguished from initial diagnostic procedures – reifying the existing criteria, rather than critiquing it.
  • Amanda Baggs - the definition of ‘mono’ or ‘one’ being an inaccurate description of autistic thought processes.
  • No ‘pure’ description of autistic experience, as mediated through cultural discourse and the views of non-autistic people:
  • ‘Monotropism may be rooted in autistic people being constantly told by others we have a one track mind without sufficient reflection on what one track means’.
