[Correspondence] Pride in autistic diversity: against treatment or for inclusion?

The Lancet Editorial (June 18, p 2479)1 invokes the theme of neurodiversity and regards autism as a condition rather than a disorder, thus respecting the identity of those with autism. Autism is a broad spectrum of disorders, and its severity varies among people. People with autism are considered differently normal, and can contribute to society like any other individual. However, evidence on autism is scarce, and the variety of the condition presents a challenge for the scientific community working to find its causes and cure.
