Is Dyslexia A DisAbility?
Labour MP Graham Stringer recently released his opinion that dyslexia is a myth invented by education chiefs to cover up poor teaching methods. He was, understandably, heavily criticised by dyslexia charities. When I first heard the news, I planned to write a rant about how he was talking rubbish. But then I discovered that my friends at mainstream blog Liberal Conspiracy had taken the post straight out of my mind. Unity’s excellent essay sparked a debate with another mainstream blogger, Letters From A Tory. So I decided to cross-post their whole debate here at this blog. This page has been created so I could list the links to these cross-posts all in one place, because this debate has kept the ‘Same’ in ‘Same Difference.’
John Rack at CIF- DisAbility I have not cross-posted this as I don’t want to break any CIF rules but have linked it instead.
