Sir,

We thank Vidyadharan and Harish[1] for their interest in our article. It may be appearing contradictory, but it is taken from National Centre for Learning Disabilities. Disorder, disability or difference: What's the right term? 2014. Available from: http://www.ncld.org/archives/blog/disorder-disability-or-difference -what-the right-term. [Last accessed on 2018 Mar 26].

Regarding the second point, the point is well taken, but probably the authors of the letter are referring to the RPWD 2016 Act. Our mention was of the latest notification issued by the Gazette of India published on January 4, 2018.[2]

Financial support and sponsorship

Nil.
