"You’re a teacher. A girl in your class stands too close when she talks to classmates and speaks too loudly. She doesn’t understand anyone’s jokes. She is forever getting lost finding her classrooms even though she has been in this school for more than three months. She's reluctant to try to learn anything new. She remembers lots of things but seems disorganized and scattered. You are wondering if she may have Asperger’s syndrome."
Her actual diagnosis? Non-verbal learning disorder.
Non-verbal communication, including social distance, facial expression, body posture, gestures, speaking tone, and interaction rate, makes up about 65% of our communication. That’s the largest part of our communications! It may be hard to describe exactly what is not quite right with someone with NVLD. But not being able to read others’ non-verbal cues and little awareness of their own non-verbal presence can lead to significant communication problems and isolation.
NVLD is most typically diagnosed late in the elementary years or the pre-teen years during middle school. These students are often are challenged by academic assignments, in spite of their skill with language, and they have few positive relationships. Depression is one of the triggers that often will move these children toward a full evaluation. The reason for the late diagnosis is that there are so many areas these individuals excel in. Their reading, spelling and verbal skills are very strong.
Common characteristics are:
Poor writing skills.
When tested, their verbal skills are strong but their visual skills, such as doing puzzles and visual matching, are weaker
Difficulty with transitions and trying new things
Non-stop or frequent talking/questioning
Visual spatial difficulties – poor sense of direction
Very literal and have difficulty with metaphors, humor, idioms and other figurative language concepts.
