NEW RESEARCH PAPER
Researchers at Columbia University and Child Mind Institute, led by Amy Margolis, PhD. estimate that NVLD occurs in 3 to 4 percent of children in North America. Read the new publication in JAMA Open.
The NVLD Project and Winston Preparatory School worked together to create a presentation to help both parents and educators better understand NVLD and how it can manifest in the classroom.
Our Project Social Ambassadors are young adults with NVLD who want to raise awareness and build support for the community.
How is The NVLD Project making a difference?
The NVLD Project is conducting evidenced-based research with several renowned institutions and experts, including epidemiologic, neuroimaging and MRI studies. Our research initiatives also include a distinct effort to secure inclusion of Non-Verbal Learning Disability into the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM).
The NVLD Project is working to educate parents, educators, professionals and the public about Non-Verbal Learning Disability. Through awareness campaigns and educational workshops at various schools in New York, we have helped those working with children with NVLD better understand the disorder. Our education efforts also include an upcoming educational toolkit.
The NVLD Project is committed to helping those with NVLD in order to bring about positive change in their lives and greater acceptance by society. We do this through several initiatives, including awareness campaigns, ongoing communications efforts, special events, social media, our ambassador program and more.
