Bridging the Gap: Raising A Child With Nonverbal Learning Disorder
“A special-needs guide that comes to the rescue” (Carol Stock Kranowitz, author of The Out-of-Sync Child) of those who struggle with an increasingly common condition.
Millions of children suffer from Nonverbal Learning Disorder, a neurological deficit that prevents them from understanding nonverbal cues like tone of voice and facial expressions. Though they can be exceptionally bright and articulate, these children often have difficulty in social situations, and can become depressed, withdrawn, or anxious.
Varney Whitney, a pediatric occupational therapist and the parent of a child with NLD, offers practical solutions, the latest information, and all-new activities that will help parents put their child on the path to a happy, fulfilling life.

This is the best book I have read about NLD. It offers a lot of practical advise and describes the ways NLD presents in a child's life. It is very positive, instead of the negative view of NLD. It gave me hope. Read full review
