Helping Children with Nonverbal Learning Disabilities to Flourish: A Guide for Parents and Professionals (Paperback)
by Marilyn Martin (Author)
When you continuously cannot find the bathroom in your best friend's house, or you cannot print the letter 't' when all your friends are writing volumes, you notice and you ask questions. So it was for Marilyn Martin's daughter, Sara, who was diagnosed with Nonverbal Learning Disability (NLD).
This book skilfully combines a comprehensive guide to NLD with the inspiring story of how Sara transformed herself from that young girl whose existence seemed darkened by learning difficulties into the capable young woman she is today.
In Helping Children with Nonverbal Learning Disabilities to Flourish, Marilyn Martin presents a comprehensive developmental profile of children with NLD. She explores the controversies surrounding the disorder so parents and professionals can identify learners with NLD and insure they receive early intervention. Offering practical advice on NLD at home and at school, she describes step-by-step interventions for improving a range of skills from penmanship to social acumen.
This book is essential reading for parents and professionals working with children with NLD.
