Recognizing Aspergers or NLD

No two people with Asperger’s Syndrome (AS) or NLD are alike. People with AS and NLD are usually enjoyable bright people who bring unique insights and hard work to any task they undertake. However, the official diagnostic criteria for AS or NLD focuses on challenges, so in this post I share some of the experiences I’ve had with clients that I hope bring this criteria to life. There are differences between NLD and AS, but these experiences tend to be shared.

  1. FYI: It Would have been helpful if in the first paragraph, NLD would have been described/explained, just as AS had been. I had to do a search of the site to learn NLD means “nonverbal learning disorder”

  2. I just started reading about AS. I think my father may suffer from it to some degree. He exhibits some of the behaviors I’ve read about. I often wonder if I am an Aspie too. I just joined this group. I have a feeling I’m going to learn a lot here. Thanks for the post.
