Non-Verbal Learning Disabilities

Characteristics, Diagnosis and Treatment within an Educational Setting

Jessica Kingsley Publishers

This is an accessible introduction to Nonverbal Learning Disabilities (NLD), a syndrome which was first recognized in the 1970s. Since this time, the number of children diagnosed with NLD, a condition that combines both behavioural and coordination problems, has been slowly rising.

Marieke Molenaar-Klumper provides an overview of the varied opinions expressed about NLD. Inspired by extensive research, she describes the cognitive, psychometric, socio-emotional and visual aspects of this syndrome. She also discusses how NSD can be diagnosed and describes how the syndrome associates itself with other conditions. She completes her overview of NLD by suggesting practical treatment strategies that can be applied both at home and in school.

Marieke Molenaar-Klumper is an orthopedic pediatrician affiliated to the Pediatric Institute/School "De Brug" (The Bridge), in Leiden.
