I work as a researcher with the project: Making sense of autism, ADHD, OCD, and Tourette Syndrome: a cognitive semantic perspective. The project is funded by the Crafoord Foundation and the Torsten Söderberg Foundation. It explores meaning making in written communication about these neurodevelopmental disorders in order to delineate the basic conceptualizations that underlie representations of autism, ADHD, OCD, and TS in written communication and to determine how these relate to overall communicative aims. By describing and comparing different modes of written communication around these disorders, the project asks whether medical practitioners and patients construct and use shared or distinct meaning systems relative to autism, ADHD, OCD, and TS.
