Dr. Anamaria Richardson is a community based pediatrician, who works with children and families with complexity – this includes children with medical, behavioural and social complexity – and includes children with genetic disorders, neurodevelopmental disorders such as autism and mental health disorders as well as families living with impacts of racism. Obtainment of health with these families requires navigation of multiple barriers. Families have taught her that there are immense systemic health inequities that currently exist in our systems. Dr. Richardson was born and grew up in South America, and previously worked as a teacher. These became formative experiences that helped shape the critical lens with which she views the world. In her work with families with neurodiversity, she has questioned the current use of labelling through diagnosis and hopes to use her year as a Wall Scholar to explore the history of two similar diagnoses, autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD). This will allow an exploration of how social norms influence diagnoses and to question whether the process of diagnoses causes harm and prevents the obtainment of health in an inequitable manner.
