Investigating diagnostic methods: perspectives from social science


Oliver Avdi*

This review looks at how childhood neurological disabilities are diagnosed using social science analysis. The historical and conceptual trends in the literature are captured in three sections of the paper. The first section focuses on research that shows how important it is to communicate effectively with parents when giving a diagnosis. The second section looks at the role parents can play as "partners" or contributors to the diagnosis, and the final section digs deeper into the social complexity of diagnoses to look at how social practices, power structures, and institutions are ingrained in the encounter with a diagnosis.
