Question description

Edward is a seven-year-old boy who has difficulty reading. His teacher refers him to the school psychologist to evaluate for a learning disability. The psychologist's report concludes that Edward has dyslexia and mild central nervous system impairment.

Edward's mother asks whether the report means that her son has brain damage. The psychologist says, "He has impairments, but I wouldn't say that he is brain damaged."

How would you explain this answer? What is dyslexia?

What are the different nuances of meaning associated with the expressions brain damage and central nervous system impairment?

In our culture, are we overly sensitive and fearful about the idea of brain damage?

Is this fear justified?
