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.

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.

Now, evidence that bears upon the white matter model has been gathered into a single volume.

This manual is based on current neuroscience and treatment outcome studies that demonstrate the importance of focusing on the full range and depth of emotional and social functioning. Beginning with a classification of the spectrum of personality patterns and disorders found in individuals and then describing a profile of mental functioning that permits a clinician to look in detail at each of the patient's capacities, the entries include a description of the patient's symptoms with a focus on the patient's internal experiences as well as surface behaviors. Intended to expand on the DSM (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders)and ICD (International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems) efforts in cataloging the symptoms and behaviors of mental health patients, this manual opens the door to a fuller understanding of the functioning of the mind, brain, and their development.
