I am working on a paper about dyslexia. It is interesting to me that, on the one hand, dyslexia is labeled as a disability or deficit, or a glitch in the brain. But on the other hand, data shows that these same kids have above average IQ. How can the brain be both - disabled and above average IQ. Are there other situations where this is true? I was fascinated by the conversation on Cerebral Glucose Metabolism as related to intelligence in a separate post, but it was a little over my head. I was hoping someone here could comment on all of this, but in more layman terms. Thanks!
