British Dyslexia Association Research Conference

Presentation of research to evidence that people with dyslexia do not have a disorder, but are instead neurocognitively specialised.

Research Paper

Presentation of research that people with dyslexia do not have a disorder, but rather, are neurocognitively specialised. The apparent deficits are not deficits, but rather trade-offs that exist due to specialisation and enhanced abilities  that are critically important to society. It is urgent that we shift our perspective and recognise the importance of this form of cognition and nurture the abilities that exist.

Presented as part of the WHOLE group: Academics and practitioners working to present the whole picture of dyslexia, including the strengths as well as the difficulties.
