The Ethics of Advocacy and Consent
Dis/orientating Autism, Childhood, and Dis/ability, 13 October 2022; pp 103–121 [Springer]
This chapter, though short, is presented discretely between the end of the methodology chapter and before the analytical chapters because it is both methodological and analytical. It explores ethical issues, particularly in relation to advocacy and consent, which were necessary in developing, delivering and writing an ethical project. At the heart of the project is a queering of normative conceptualisations of autistic childhood which, as has already been discussed, requires a queering of traditional, theoretical and methodological orientations.
