This week I am once again sharing the mic, for a deep dive into intersectionality and the importance of looking at neurodiversity through different cultural lenses. Marcia Brissett-Bailey is currently a Special Educational Needs and Disability case officer for a local authority, but for the last 15 years was a careers adviser within post sixteen and higher education. She is the cofounder of the BDA Cultural Perspective Committee, and trustee of a London based Dyslexia Association. She is passionate about championing Dyslexia awareness as well as understanding Dyslexia from a cultural perspective and is currently writing a book on the subject.
Before we dive in she would like for me to state that her views are based on her own personal experiences, and may not align with the opinions of other Black Dyslexics. She does not speak for Black Dyslexics and neurodivergents
