What is a learning disability? What is dyslexia? As a friend and respected scientist once said, they are terms “we invented to help children in need.” If so, who are these children in need? What can be done to help? Unless we know the answers to these questions, parents and educators will be confined to a Tower of Babel where communications are unintelligible expressions of anxiety and frustration that promote conflict instead of collaboration. What is needed is a common understanding upon which meaningful communication can be based.
