People with Non-Verbal Learning Disability struggle with conditions that range from social to spatial disabilities.
We are dedicated to awareness, support, and creating solutions for those with Non-Verbal Learning Disability.
We sponsored a meeting in May bringing in NVLD experts from all over the world .
What is NVLD?
NVLD is a complicated and poorly understood social and spatial learning disability. People with NVLD struggle with a range of conditions but specifically have difficulty with social skills and spatial concepts.
See how The NVLD Project is making a difference
The NVLD Project sponsored a NVLD consensus meeting at Columbia University Medical Center. An advisory committee was created to define NVLD in a format that would be acceptable for inclusion in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM).
Columbia University Medical Center
The NVLD Project is supporting an important research study at Columbia University Medical Center (CUMC) in New York City. The information obtained from this research will shed considerable light on how NVLD develops in childhood and how we treat this disorder in the future. Currently, children between the ages of 7 and 16 are invited to participate.
