How the Media Discusses Daniel Radcliffe’s Dyspraxia is Outdated and Damaging

In the mid-1990s, I received my dyspraxia diagnosis. Like a lot of women my age, I have read all seven Harry Potter books and have seen every single movie adaption. Full disclosure though: I was a Harry Potter fan before I knew that J. K Rowling is transphobic, and that’s a subject for another article, at another point in time.

As a dyspraxic former Harry Potter nerd though, it’s always a small victory to see an article on Daniel Radcliffe’s dyspraxia. The more the word gets out there about dyspraxia the better because it makes my life a lot easier.
