I was just reading posts during lunch and ran across one referencing NonVerbal Learning Disorder (NVLD). A comment was made about the school not knowing about NonVerbal Learning Disorder (NVLD) and I thought to myself hello where have I been I've never heard or had it mentioned to me either. Not that I'm looking for another diagnosis, but sometimes you just run across things by chance and it's like where has the acronym NonVerbal Learning Disorder (NVLD) been the past 6 years. Does anyone know if this is something commonly diagnosed? As soon as you think your making head way towards a better diagnosis you stumble on to something else that seems even more likely and probable. Well I guess this is just part of the path people take with difficult child's, schools, and Psyc docs. I know that so many of these diagnosis overlap and sometimes I feel like they are overlooked as a serious diagnosis and just perceived as another name for a group of symptoms that are all part an underlying diagnosis (ex. ADH) Maybe it's for the purpose of prescribing RX's whether ADHD, Bi Polar, or ODD they are going to be treated with the same drugs. But for me personally I'm still looking for an answer and explanation on why and what causes his problems. Anyway I guess I have a new topic to search tonight on Internet.
