Many people with neurodevelopmental conditions face an increased risk of physical health disparities. However, much of the research on neurodevelopmental conditions is focused on the cause, cure, prevention, and treatment of neurodevelopmental conditions instead of on the co-occurring health conditions. Many people within some populations with neurodevelopmental conditions (e.g., Autism, Down syndrome, etc) consider this research to be eugenics. The heavy emphasis on eugenics-related research creates mistrust in research with many adults from these populations. For example, many intellectually-able adults may not participate in genetics research, that could lead to better outcomes with co-occurring health conditions, because they do not want to contribute their genetic data to research with eugenics aims. Additionally, much research, including genetics research, under-emphasize their eugenics aims in within the informed consent- which is unethical and increases mistrust within these communities. We need to create very clear DISTINCTIONS between health-related and eugenics-related research for people with neurodevelopmental conditions.
