Autism beyond pediatrics: Why bioethicists ought to rethink consent in light of chronicity and genetic identity

Bioethics 26 (5):236-241 (2012)
Abstract
Autism is a chronic neurodevelopmental disorder that presents unique challenges to bioethicists. In particular, bioethicists ought to reconsider pediatric consent in light of disparity between beliefs that are held about the disorder by parents and adults with autism. The neurodiverse community ought to be given some consideration in this debate, and, as such, there may be a role for autistic narratives in clarifying this problem
