Research Study for Parents of Children with NVLD

Are you a parent or caregiver of a child who has at some point been given a diagnosis of NonVerbal Learning Disability (NVLD or NLD)? Or do you think that your child may have NVLD based on what you have learned from this website and other sources?

If so, we want to hear from you!

With support from The NVLD Project, Dr. Prudence Fisher at Columbia University has put together a computer survey to learn more about individuals (ages up to 30) with NVLD from the perspectives of their parents (or caregiver, close relative, etc.). The on-line survey takes about 30-45 minutes and can be done at any time. In addition to collecting basic background information about your child, the survey includes questions about common problems thought to be associated with NVLD, mental health, and physical health. Be assured that all your answers will be private – not shared with anyone. The survey also asks you for your feedback on a possible new name for NVLD.

If you complete the survey, you will be given the choice to enter in to a raffle for a $200 gift card.

We hope that this research project will help us learn more about the life course of people who have NVLD.

If you would like to participate, please email Dr. Fisher and her research team at They will send you a private “link” so that you can access the survey. They look forward to hearing from you.

Please note that business hours are Monday-Friday, 9am-5:30pm EST. Dr. Fisher’s team will respond to your email within 72 hours.
