The Dyslexia Quest Podcast

Brian Kinghorn. Neurodiversity advocate. Ted X Speaker . Statistician

I love a conversation that manages to be philosophical, cynical and hopeful all at once. In this thought provoking jam session with TED speaker Brian Kinghorn we get into an in wonderful chat which touches upon topics that range from, the nature of pathology and disorder to how "neurodiversity" can become another form of discriminatory elitism ,while touching upon both Brian's personal journey and his vision for the future.

Favorite Quote:

"We see differences , yet the whole problem is when we say which one is the correct one, which one is the order or the disorder. Because... we try to establish that whatever the "typical" majority does is right, which is not necessarily right. Typical means majority, that's all it means, we need to abandon the value judgement"
