about this item

Murphy, who has NLD, offers a guide for teens and young adults (and their parents, teachers, and therapists) with Nonverbal Learning Disabilities (NLD). He draws on research, his experiences and opinions, and the experiences of other young adults with NLD to explain what it is, its history, and its symptoms and diagnosis, including its difference from other learning disabilities; what is going on in the NLD brain in terms of sensory sensitivities, social cues and empathy, executive functioning and decision making, and learning disabilities; what parents, therapists, guidance counselors, teachers, and school administrators should know about aspects of the condition; preparing for academic success, friendship and dating, life after high school, and having a good life; and why NLD is ignored as a learning disability. This edition has been expanded and updated with more description of each symptom and responses to frequently asked questions. Annotation ©2016 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
