Open peer commentary on the article “The Construction of Autism: Between Reflective and Background Knowledge” by Maciej Wodziński & Paulina Gołaska-Ciesielska. Abstract: I provide an outline of the notion of autism spectrum disorder, and present different models and changes in the understanding of this concept over recent years. Then, I point out the one-sidedness of the interpretation of some of the data collected by the authors of the target article and delineate a more comprehensive approach to the phenomenon of autism proposed by the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health 2001 (ICF) and Priestley’s models.
