The word itself is a bad joke for dyslexics

I feel the word dyslexia is so demeaning in itself. Why should we characterise a different way of thinking as an illness? It’s actually anything but an illness. It’s been a great asset to me in so many ways. Psychology labels dyslexia as a dysfunction and they study what’s wrong with you – but this is an intrinsically wrong approach – they should be studying what’s right about you and what you can excel at.
