Ethics approval and consent to participate
: Data collection by the researchers at Bournemouth University was ethically approved by Bournemouth University’s ethics panel (for TD controls). The clinic we collaborated with, Dorset NHS Community Adult Asperger Service (CAAS), had previously received NHS approval to collect RAADS-R data. In the course of data collection, participants were told that their data could be used in scientific papers and gave their consent to go forward. The researchers were granted access to raw scores of autistic people but no personal or identifying information, and consent was granted by the clinic for us to publish our findings.
: Consent to publish data in an anonymous form was obtained from each participant.
: The authors declare that they have no competing interests.
: Springer Nature remains neutral with regard to jurisdictional claims in published maps and institutional affiliations.
