Subject: NLD or NVLD How do I tell my 18 year old daughter???
Hi all. I've spent 18 years keeping my daughter physically healthy and academically on target. Unfortunately, I've never told her that she has NLD, Nonverbal Learning Disability. It makes her 'different' in social situations, she reasons differently, she has poor spatial awareness, and more. Now she wants to move away to go to college. We've registered her, but our housing and job opportunities have fallen through. I need some tools and advice on several areas: 1) Are there books designed for unaware NLD people so that they can discover their situation themselves? 2) If not, how do I go about telling her? 3) What are some resources or advocates when moving forward into college? Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.
