Neurodivergence may not be a disability say scientists

Dyslexia should be considered a difference, not a disorder says a new report from Cambridge University.

Please note this post is about dyslexia, and while there is no evidence that it could apply to to autistics as well, there is absolutely zero evidence so far that it could apply to us.

However I am hopeful that as research develops it could be seen to be true of other neurodiverse conditions, research is at an early stage. In any case a lot of autistics, including me, also have dyslexia, so it is relevant to link here.
