In this paper, and in relation to IDC research with autistic children, we will address the three questions 1. Are we trying the right thing? 2. Is it working? 3. Does it matter? We will do this based on experiences from our own research with mixed groups of children, meaning children with and without some developmental diversity, including also children within the autism spectrum. We propose 1. To extend the focus of IDC research on children with autism to mixed groups of children, 2. To carefully consider the difference in taking a medical or a socio-constructionist approach, and finally 3. To consider when the IDC researcher responsibility end.
