The author offers a commentary on the article "Complicating and Explicating: Taking up Reason in Learning Disabilities Research" by Julie Allan, in the Spring 2011 issue of "Learning Disability Quarterly. According to Allan, the inequalities of a normative power of ideology that credits success to children's characteristics makes students with learning disabilities view themselves in terms of what they lack. Allan suggests to follow the theoretical concepts of transgression and rhizome.
