I'm curious to know: has anyone found any good essays or research on the effects of using a neurotypical character as the viewpoint character observing an autistic or ADHD character? What oppressions and distortions result? Benefits? For what audiences?

How does it feel as someone autistic to read those stories? (or ADHD, though I've a view there)

This has such a long history — Watson and Sherlock Holmes are an example.

(not interested in absolutive moral 'you should not' responses)
