NLDA Mission Statement What is NLD? Diagnostic Criteria Positive Interventions NLDA Store Join NLDA Now! Why Join NLDA? Message from NLDA President Links Support Portal Welcome to NLDA Nonverbal Learning Disorder, known as NLD, is a neurophysiological disorder orginating in the right hemisphere of the brain. Reception of nonverbal or performance-based information governed by this hemisphere is impaired in varying degrees, including problems with visual-spatial, intuitive, organizational, evaluative, and holistic processing functions. Sue Thompson’s death on April 16th has deprived the NLD community of a gifted scientific observer who was not only imaginative and visionary, but also astute and pragmatic. She translated the neuroscientific rhetoric of ivory tower NLD into user-friendly language that could easily and effectively be used in our homes and schools. Sue’s awareness that people dealing with this complex learning disorder need care and education led to the founding of SHARE Support, Inc., the grass roots organization that laid the groundwork for the NLDA. Referring to the frequent explanations required by some children with NLD, Sue originally titled her first book, I Shouldn’t Have to Tell You. Perhaps you should not have had to, Sue, but we are so very glad you did. All of us whose lives are touched by NLD owe you undying gratitude. May you find eternal life in the accomplishments of people for whom your insight made the difference between failure and success.

V. References How Does One Identify the Learning Disabled Gifted?
It is difficult to describe or list typical characteristics of learning disabled gifted people because there are so many types of giftedness and so many possible learning disabilities. The biggest problem in identification is that a disability often masks or inhibits the expression of giftedness, so that it is difficult to tell whether a person's abilities are outstanding enough to indicate giftedness. On the other hand, giftedness can often mask the learning disability because the person's abilities can help him or her overcome or compensate for the disability. Some weaknesses that are observed more frequently than others in these children are the following: poor handwriting, poor spelling, lack of organizational ability, and difficulty in employing systematic strategies for solving problems. More frequently observed strengths are in speaking, understanding and identifying relationships, vocabulary, knowledge of information related to a wide variety of topics, and observational skills. In general, thinking and reasoning processes are often not impaired, but the mechanics involved in writing, reading, mathematics computation, and completing academic tasks often present great difficulties.

Policy Statement for Documentation of a Learning Disability in Adolescents and Adults
These materials were adapted from a document developed by an ad hoc committee established by the Association on Higher Education and Disability (AHEAD). The primary intent of the ad hoc committee was to develop standard criteria for documenting learning disabilities (LD) that could be used by postsecondary personnel and consumers requiring documentation to determine appropriate accommodations for individuals with learning disabilities.

Risk and Antisocial Behavior
Section II
Prevention and Policy Practice
The public expects schools to socialize children as well as to educate them.1 In fact, socialization, rather than academics, is why many parents choose public education over private or home school. However, public criticism of schools' performance in both roles has increased in recent years. The public wants schools to be responsible not only for improving achievement but also for curbing disruptive, violent, and antisocial behavior. As a result, support is growing for "zero tolerance" discipline policies and alternative school placement for disruptive students. Discussions about discipline have especially focused on special education students. Some teachers and parents are against the inclusion of potentially disruptive students in regular education classrooms and schools. They want to change laws and policies that discourage exclusion, suspension, and expulsion of such students. However, for children suffering from disabilities and other risk factors like poverty, crime, and abuse, traditional discipline methods and policies may exacerbate rather than remedy problem behavior.2 Discipline reacts to behavior that has already occurred. Schools may also need to focus their efforts on prevention. David Hawkins, professor of social work and director of a 10-year delinquency prevention study at the University of Washington in Seattle, worked as a probation officer in the 1970s. He says

Types of Neurological Damage found in learning disabilities and Attention Deficit Disorder. INDEX Environmental Causes of learning disabilities.
Author: Richard W. Pressinger (M.Ed.)
Project Supervisor - Professor Kofi Marfo (Ph.D.), Special Education Department,
University of South Florida, Tampa, Florida
email: T his report is the result of a 1997 Graduate Student Research Project conducted through the Special Education Department at the University of South Florida. The project involved extensive research of published peer reviewed medical journal articles which have shown environmental and chemical exposure factors can cause damage to the delicate brain growth processes in the unborn child during pregnancy, thereby demonstrating potential to cause Learning Disabilities, Attention Deficit Disorder, Hyperactivity and other child behavior anomalies. This report generates serious concern as public exposure to identified chemical sources continues to grow due to increased use in homes, jobs and consumer products.
The impact of the resulting decreased quality of offspring upon the families,
schools and society is discussed.

What Causes Learning Disabilities?
It is believed that learning disabilities are caused by a difficulty with the nervous system that affects receiving, processing, or communicating information. Some learning disabled children are also hyperactive, easily distracted, and have a short attention span. Early Detection and Treatment is Important
Child and adolescent psychiatrists point out that learning disabilities are treatable, but if not detected and treated early, they can have a serious "snowballing" effect. For instance, a child who does not learn addition in elementary school cannot understand algebra in high school. The child, trying very hard to learn, becomes more and more frustrated, and develops emotional problems such as low self-esteem in the face of repeated failure. Some learning disabled children misbehave in school because they would rather be seen as "bad" than "stupid." Warning Signs
Parents should be aware of the most frequent signals of learning disabilities. Does your child:
