What autism topic do you want me to cover next in my Sunday Twitter Space?
FWIW, the cooking one would be aimed at people who are exhausted, brainfogged, executively dysfunctional or dyspraxic, who are trying to eat as nutritionally as possible, with sensory issues around food, and with food sensitivities.
The sensory overstimulation one would be about the various categories of sensory overload and the cofactors (based on my learning to date), and how I've kept my own sensory overload in remission for 6 years, and what results others (adults and children) have achieved.
For that one, I mostly credit Benjine Gerber, who is super knowledgeable about this topic. This topic is also suitable for doctors (#MedTwitter and #TipsforNewDocs) interested in participatory medicine or research.
You can bookmark it so long. The time shown is your local timezone. (It's 19:00 on 12 December in my timezone.)

The one on common health issues would include things which often happen to nonspeaking/minimally autistic children.

Teaching autistic children that smiling means someone is happy or friendly, without teaching them that there are enormous exceptions to the rule, is basically gaslighting and you deserve to be punished for it until you smile.
Putting on a brave face isn't always brave; nor is taking it down always safe either.
But USUALLY smiling means someone is happy or friendly, right? (Which is it, happy, or friendly?)

This mother is fleeing Ontario where those in authority would have continued imposing #ConversionTherapy on her child without her consent and without the child's consent. They just don't call it Conversion Therapy.
If it's #ConversionTherapy, but they're not calling it that, what ARE they calling it? Well, probably "ABA", but...

...#ConversionTherapy hides within many programmes which have provincial funding in Canada in spite of the #conversiontherapylaw: EIBI, IBI... They strip victims of the right to consent.

I want to comment on this thread and why I agree with it, even though the purveyors of some of these methods will argue that they are very different, to be able to pitch the benefits against each other.

Gimme a few days.
Let's start by saying that all of these approaches are designed to modify behaviour.
This thread illustrates why that's just plain weird.

@DavidLametti The Ontario government is still SPONSORING #ConversionTherapy and has recently allocated several million dollars to training new RBTs to deliver this. Are you going to stop them?
@DavidLametti Here's one of the companies that benefit from the Ontario government's sponsorship of #ConversionTherapy for disabled children. Parents and providers have lobbied hard to keep this pseudoscience going, and the government agreed.
@DavidLametti Do you need more direct evidence? The Ontario government is sponsoring #ConversionTherapy. Will you stop them, or are you going to make child abusers exempt from prosecution if the victims are disabled?

Is torture an evidence-based means of eliciting a confession?

(Yes, this is a rather loaded question.)
Are all the people saying no even reading the research? tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10.108…
Now, separate question: is torture an evidence-based means of deterrence?
