Non-Neurotypical Thoughts: An Anti-Ist Blog

Question for my fellow non-neurotypicals…?

My brother is having trouble reading. He’s 12. He claims he can’t read stuff when it’s not in more than 2 colors. (Example would be black text, blue background.)

Technically, he can read it, but not for very long- he gets frustrated with it after 1 paragraph.

Could he be non-neurotypical? What does this seem like to you?
