Updates & Corrections
Clarification 29 September 2021: This article has been amended to use the identity-first language ‘autistic people’.
Clarification 04 October 2021: The story has been modified to make clear that certain criticisms of the Spectrum 10K study stem from some, but not all, in the autism community.
Clarification 07 October 2021: The word ‘suspended’ has been removed from the story to avoid ambiguity; the Spectrum 10K study was voluntarily paused by the research team.
