    Being Versus Appearing Socially Uninterested: Challenging Assumptions About Social Motivation in Autism.Vikram K. Jaswal & Nameera Akhtar - 2019 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 42:1-84.
    Progress in psychological science can be limited by a number of factors, not least of which are the starting assumptions of scientists themselves. We believe that some influential accounts of autism rest on a questionable assumption that many of its behavioral characteristics indicate a lack of social interest – an assumption that is flatly contradicted by the testimony of many autistic people themselves. In this article, we challenge this assumption by describing alternative explanations for four such behaviors: low levels of (...)

    Experiencing Social Connection: A Qualitative Study of Mothers of Nonspeaking Autistic Children.Janette Dinishak, Vikram Jaswal, Christine Stephan & Nameera Akhtar - 2020 - PLoS ONE 11 (15):online.
    Autistic children do not consistently show conventional signs of social engagement, which some have interpreted to mean that they are not interested in connecting with other people. If someone does not act like they are interested in connecting with you, it may make it difficult to feel connected to them. And yet, some parents report feeling strongly connected to their autistic children. We conducted phenomenological interviews with 13 mothers to understand how they experienced connection with their 5- to 14-year-old nonspeaking (...)

    Supporting Autistic Flourishing.Vikram K. Jaswal & Nameera Akhtar - 2019 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 42.
    In response to the 32 commentaries, we clarify and extend two of the central arguments in our target article: Social motivation is a dynamic, emergent process, not a static characteristic of individuals, and autistic perspectives are essential to the study of autistic social motivation. We elaborate on how taking these two arguments seriously can contribute to a more accurate, humane, and useful science of autism.
