This post discusses three ways of conceptualizing autism. While the distinction among these three ways of thinking about autism may seem like a purely theoretical issue, each of these conceptual models has powerful implications for the way that we study and treat autism.

The Edmonton Journal (August 17, 2013) included an article on a private members’ bill promoting testing for Irlen Syndrome in schools. Medical professionals heavily oppose the bill and I thought I should add my voice to the opposition as an educational professional. I also hope to challenge some of the arguments made in the article about the understanding or existence of scientific studies, and move the discussion to a more scientific (and skeptical) direction.
