How autism influences choices in personal possessions
What is it about?
This paper outlines the results of a large scale study which demonstrates differences in the values attached to personal possessions by individuals on the autism spectrum (towards a preference for more functional possessions), with implications for the evolutionary contribution of autism and for clinical practice.
Why is it important?
This helps us to understand how autism is complementary to neurotypical ways of thinking from an evolutionary perspective and can help clinical practice.
