Dyslexia is the most common learning disability in the United States. It’s not about lacking comprehension, having a low IQ or being deprived of a good education. It’s about having a really hard time reading.

On Neurodiversity

Last spring, I started referring to Neurodiversity when topics around learning differences came up in conversations, often in the context of the Learning and Metacognition component of our Human Development Department curriculum.

This fall, I’ve continued incorporating this language into the work I’m doing, particularly in creating our school’s Statement on Equity and Community.

It’s been interesting to see the reactions people are having to this term. It’s clear people need more information, so here’s some. Enjoy!
