Increasing numbers of children and adolescents are being diagnosed with nonverbal learning disabilities (NLD), yet clinicians and educators have few scientific resources to guide assessment and intervention. This book presents up-to-date knowledge on the nature of NLD and how to differentiate it from DSM-5 disorders such as autism spectrum disorder and developmental coordination disorder. Effective strategies for helping K-12 students and their families address the challenges of NLD in and outside of the classroom are illustrated with vivid case material. The authors thoughtfully consider controversies surrounding NLD, discuss why the diagnosis is not included in the current DSM and ICD classification systems, and identify important directions for future research.

Extremely practical, Survive and Thrive, walks individuals through the entire APD diagnosis process, including how to best navigate systems to utilize assets available. Resources are identified for parents, teachers, and providers to unite the entire treatment team. Auditory Processing Disorder (APD) can create frustration and challenges for those with this disorder. Often not recognized for many years, young people with APD and the people in their lives can feel inadequate and challenged to understand information. Even after diagnosis, these individuals may be confused about what the disorder is and how to best work with it to recognize full potential. This book is unique because it is targeted to all the supports in a young person with APD’s life. It contains helpful information and is accessible and entertaining for youth, parents, and professionals. This allows the entire treatment team to have the same information for everyone to be on the same page. Practical exercises at the end of each chapter helps create an action plan for adolescents to take information presented and apply it to their own lives. Clinicians can use these action plans as exercises for psycho-educational groups. Survive and Thrive has fun artwork and design to build interest and help make information digestible. However, it treats teens as equal partners in their APD treatment and teaches them strategies for self-advocacy, something that they will take with them their whole lives. Extremely practical, Survive and Thrive, walks individuals through the entire APD diagnosis process, including how to best navigate systems to utilize assets available. Resources are identified; parents will learn they are not alone and will learn how to take penetrate the often confusing world of school systems and obtaining educational support. As illustrated by the examples and biographies shared in the book, including the author’s own personal family struggles with APD and her resilience and determination to become a clinical and school psychologist treating youth with this disorder, APD does not have to define a child or adolescent. It is imperative to have the tools and resources to help them maximize their abilities and live their best lives. “My bookshelves are lined with professional texts that I refer to on a daily basis in my work as a Special Education consultant. The books are arranged according to the disability that the text focusses upon. The narrowest section is for books that explains and demystify the complex challenge of Auditory Learning Disabilities. A paucity of “practical guides” exist for this disorder. Enter Loraine Alderman and her new book SURVIVING AND THRIVING WITH AUDITORY LEARNING DISABILITIES: Strategies for Teens, Parents and Teachers. Dr. Alderman’s readable and user-friendly book explains the disorder and offers field-tested techniques and practices that can enable the motivated student to reach his fullest academic and social potential. Among the books greatest assets is its view of “parent as consumer”. Loraine provides lists of questions and queries that parents should ask when searching for professionals to assist their child and guide the family. Too often, parents fail to realize that a “perfect professional/client fit” can only happen when ALL parties are comfortable and confident with the pairing. I know of no other book that provides this invaluable information. Dr. Alderman’s knowledge, experience, wisdom and sensitivity make this book a must for adults who care for a child with ALD. She will be an invaluable guide on this challenging journey.” ___________Richard D. Lavoie, M.A., M.Ed.__________ Author- “The Motivation Breakthrough” Executive Producer, Talent The F.A.T.

Learning disabilities is a subject that is usually associated with school-aged children where the research and intervention strategies are well known. Much less research has been done for assessing and diagnosing older adolescents and adults in this area. This work is an effort to provide a comprehensive review of what we know about certain of these disorders, specifically: language-based learning disorders; nonverbal learning disorders; high-functioning autism; attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder; and mathematics disorders and how they manifest themselves in the later years of development and maturity. A chapter addresses each one of these disorders of learning. Included in each chapter is a discussion of historical perspectives, definitions and diagnostic criteria, incidence and prevalence data, comorbidity studies, pertinent research from all relevant fields of study, reasonable accommodations in academia as well as the workplace, and outcome data. This much-needed review will be of interest to clinicians in neuropsychology, educational psychology, and psychopharmacology.

Jordan's book is a valuable tool for those who work with and educate individuals with dyslexia. Now in its third edition, Overcoming Dyslexia in Children, Adolescents, and Adults tells the story of dyslexia in a positive, hopeful way. Overcoming Dyslexia leads the reader through simple, clear descriptions of the learning and social patterns of students who are dyslexic. The book summarizes in easy-to-understand language what science knows today about the causes of the different forms of dyslexia. All forms of dyslexia are described in detail. Illustrations of how dyslexia impacts classroom learning, social behavior, emotional maturity, job performance, and personal development are also provided. Chapter 1 summarizes remarkable new information about how genetic codes determine brain development and how differences in brain structure cause dyslexia. Chapter 2 explains the perceptual and emotional nature of dyslexia. Chapter 3 describes the problems of poor central vision for reading and attention deficit disorders that often exist beneath the surface of dyslexia. Chapters 4 through 6 describe the four most common subtypes of this learning difference: visual dyslexia, auditory dyslexia, dysgraphia, and dyscalculia.

Nonverbal Learning Disabilities

Based on current neurobehavioral research, this book brings together perspectives drawn from the three major domains of knowledge about NLD—neurobehavioral, social, and intrapersonal.

A nonverbal learning disability (NLD) is a developmental disorder that impairs a person's capacity to perceive, express, and understand nonverbal (nonlinguistic) signs. The dysfunctions affect behaviors, social interactions, perceptions and feelings regarding oneself and others, and emerging personality patterns. NLD constrains an individual's capacity to function in a wide variety of domains, including the academic, social, emotional, and vocational. Parents and clinicians often have difficulty understanding and helping children and adolescents who are simultaneously cherished and whose functioning is hampered by the condition. Based on current neurobehavioral research, this book brings together perspectives drawn from the three major domains of knowledge about NLD--neurobehavioral, social, and intrapersonal. From the neurobehavioral perspective, Palombo provides a research-based phenomenological description of the NLD child's symptoms. From the social perspective, he presents the child's social context and how that contributes (in positive and negative ways) to the child's skills and deficits. From the intrapersonal perspective, he introduces the concept of mindsharing as basic to understand the development of the sense of self in children with NLD. In Part I, readers are introduced to NLD as it presents in the clinic with a review of the etiology and symptomatology of the syndrome reflected in a case study. The author then goes on to describe the neurobehavioral profile of NLD (including its psychological and social dimensions). In Part II the social perspective and intrapersonal aspect of NLD are considered. Palombo describes the impact of the syndrome on social functioning, social communication, and emotional functioning. At the close of this part, readers find a clear articulation of the four NLD subtypes. The intrapersonal area is addressed in Part III where Palombo presents the concept of mindsharing--i.e., the ability of one person to both know and feel what another person is experiencing. Because they lack a capacity for mindsharing, children and adolescents affected by the syndrome often fail not only a social and emotional connection with others but also experience a lack of cohesion in their own sense of self. Finally, in Part IV, Palombo presents a therapeutic approach to working with youth with NLD. Drawing together the various clinical insights from earlier in the book, these last chapters synthesize the material and highlight the most important aspects so as to best guide the treatment of children and adolescents. Addressed to clinicians, psychiatrists, psychologists, clinical social workers, and other psychotherapists, this book is a fund of knowledge and clinical wisdom for working with youth with NLD. It offers an overarching paradigm relevant to all professionals and parents alike as they care for effected children and adolescents.

Today’s children face a multitude of pressures, from the everyday challenges of life to the increasing threats of poverty, exploitation, and trauma. Central to growing up successfully is learning to deal with stress, endure hardships, and thrive despite adversity. Resilience – the ability to cope with and overcome life’s difficulties – is a quality that can potentially be nurtured in all young people. The second edition of the Handbook of Resilience in Children updates and expands on its original focus of resilience in children who overcome adversity to include its development in those not considered at risk, leading to better outcomes for all children across the lifespan. Expert contributors examine resilience in relation to environmental stressors, as a phenomenon in child and adolescent disorders, and as a means toward positive adaptation into adulthood. New and revised chapters explore strategies for developing resilience in the family, the therapist’s office, and the school as well as its nurturance in caregivers and teachers. Topics addressed include: Resilience in maltreated children and adults. Resilience and self-control impairment. Relational resilience in young and adolescent girls. Asset-building as an essential component of treatment. Assessment of social and emotional competencies related to resilience. Building resilience through school bullying prevention programs. Large-scale longitudinal studies on resilience. The second edition of the Handbook of Resilience in Children is a must-have reference for researchers, clinicians, allied practitioners and professionals, and graduate students in school and clinical psychology, education, pediatrics, psychiatry, social work, school counseling, and public health.
