Mistaking Dyslexia and ADHD as Normal Variations or Gifts is Potentially Dangerous, Warns Dr. Harold Levinson

Mistaking Dyslexia and ADHD as Normal Variations or Gifts is Potentially Dangerous, Warns Dr. Harold Levinson

Let’s debate! Is dyslexia a normal variation in the brain? Or is it a medical disorder? Are there gifts that accompany dyslexia? Or is dyslexia just an impairment? Would dyslexics like Einstein, Disney and Branson have accomplished more if they were not dyslexic? This doctor believes it’s dangerous to look at any positive side of dyslexia; we should treat it as a debilitating defect. What do you think? (Personally, I think he’s wrong.)
