I am amazed at how common these traits are among very preterm and extremely preterm.
universal. every nation. true when I was born and true today. IDENTICAL cognitive difficulties that schools can’t fix and yet all mild enough in comparison to other SIMILAR looking things that most do ok but whose teenage years and adulthood are shockingly similar to my own.
its really a case of “this is what happens to the human when they exit the womb at this stage of development”.
That is: i am a normal vector.
There’s a great relief in that.
