Discovering the Extraordinary Gifts of Autism, ADHD, Dyslexia, and Other Brain DifferenceseBook - 2010
In "The Gift of Neurodiversity", Armstrong argues that we have been too quick to pathologise brain differences. Indeed, in recent years, we have re-classified these differences, labeling many of them "disorders." What science actually suggests is that there are many different ways for our brains to be wired, and that there are actual "gifts" or "strengths" attached to some of these differences.
