Topics such as finding the right school, curriculum modifications, and social and emotional issues experienced by children with NLD are covered. However, the bulk of the book outlines specific teaching strategies, from how to deal with essay questions, to tips on helping the student master long division and ideas for improving reading comprehension. The author defines and discusses concepts such as frontloading and a cooperative learning environment, and discusses how they benefit the student with NLD.

A Nonverbal Learning Disability (NLD) is a serious and complex developmental disability that persists into adulthood. Children and young adults affected face many difficulties not experienced by those with a language-based learning disability. Diagnosis of NLD is often difficult because fluent speech usually coexists with functional deficits that, if not identified and managed, can adversely affect developmental and educational achievement, and the young personâe(tm)s social and emotional well-being through the lifespan. Medical and Educational Perspectives on Nonverbal Learning Disability in Children and Young Adults is a comprehensive reference source for emerging research into the identification and diagnosis of a Nonverbal Learning Disability (NLD), as well as intervention for those affected. Featuring in-depth coverage of a variety of topics relating to NLD indicators, the disabilityâe(tm)s manifestation over time, and the dilemmas faced by caregivers and professionals, this publication is a critical resource for educators, medical professionals, allied health professionals, and disability service providers whose role includes advocacy and provision of appropriate support for those affected.

There are several ways to have a limited ability to think: Born that way by genetics as with Down's Syndrome. Born that way by mother's bad habits as with fetal alcohol syndrome. Get hit in the head, traumatic brain injury, concussion. Stress of life. Substance abuse, prescription drugs that alter brain chemistry Chemicals in ordinary objects like aspartame, lead, mercury, etc. Electro-magnetic waves Self-delusion, people get depressed, think too much, etc. My main purposes in writing this book are: To find all the conventional knowledge about mental challenges as I could and centralize it here. It is evident when a child is born with down syndrome or his or her performance seems slower than normal but everything else is someone's opinion as with autism spectrum disorders and learning disabilities. People who diagnose these so-called disorders have no specific test that can with certainty say they have this disorder therefore need this drug.

Although it has yet to be recognized by the American Psychiatric Association’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM), nonverbal learning disabilities (NVLD) in children are a growing concern. NVLD are receiving increased attention from researchers as well as from clinicians encountering these conditions in their young clients. At the same time, reliable information on effective interventions for NVLD has lagged behind this interest. Nonverbal Learning Disabilities in Children: Bridging the Gap Between Science and Practice offers a well-rounded understanding of NVLD, placing it within the context of other developmental disorders, most notably high-functioning autism and Asperger’s syndrome. The most current genetic, environmental, and neurobiological theories of and research into the causes of NVLD (e.g., the “white matter model”), in-depth diagnostic methods, and quality interventions are examined. Using an evidence-based approach, this groundbreaking volume: Conceptualizes NVLD as a disorder with subtypes. Differentiates between diagnostic criteria for NVLD and Asperger’s Syndrome. Analyzes the co-occurrence of NVLD with other developmental disabilities and psychological disorders. Provides a comprehensive psychoeducational assessment model. Describes efficacious treatments and supports their empirical validation. Offers guidelines for sustaining treatment gains through effective collaboration of school personnel and family members. Nonverbal Learning Disabilities in Children is a must-have reference for researchers, practitioners, and graduate students in school and clinical child psychology, education, speech-language therapy, and other disciplines and professions involved in identifying and treating children with NVLD.
