Living with Nonverbal Learning Disorder
Take a look at the interesting story of Fenton Turck or New Jersey, who has Nonverbal Learning Disorder or NLD.
For those who are not aware, NLD is a neurological condition that impairs an individual’s ability to process nonverbal information.
According to the Nonverbal Learning Disorder Association, is a “Neurophysiological disorder originating in the right hemisphere of the brain. Reception of nonverbal or performance-based information governed by this hemisphere is impaired in varying degrees, including problems with visual-spatial, intuitive, organizational, evaluative, and holistic processing functions”.
Research shows that up to 90% of messages are often communicated non verbally, so living with NLD can be challenging.
Take a look below at how Mr. Turck lives and deals with this disorder.
