Neurodiversity in Higher Education: Positive Responses to Specific Learning Differences - David Pollak

Dyslexia: Not well defined. A component seems to be "weak executive functioning" - something common to AD(H)D and autism. A tendency towards visual thinking. Similar reports of "take away my dyslexia and you take away what makes me ME" to those of Aspies and their syndrome.

There is still an issue that many people do not wish to be "labelled" because of consequent "stigma." My view is that those people are to some extent perpetuating stigma with this attitude; vicious circle that it's very hard to break out of, because they are not entirely wrong.

Teaching, Learning and Assessment: Low on specifics, high on references to  other resources. I am concluding that the efficacy of some adaptations would be heavily dependent on subject. STEM might have different problems from humanities and subjects with a practical hands-on aspect look to be different from those that do not.
