Hello, my 10 yr old ds was recently diagnosed with Non Verbal Learning Disorder. Intro: I was a SAHM until 2 yrs. ago, now work part time. I have two ds's 14 months apart, older ds is 10, younger ds just turned 9. Younger ds has always been our "golden child" extremely intelligent, good natured, lots of friends, excels at everything--sports, school, etc.. Older ds has always struggled slightlywith social interactions, he's not good at sports, struggles in school. I always thought he was ADD/ADHD. Teachers never brought it up, it was my own gut instinct (I have a Psych degree). We recently had him evaluated. He was diagnosed with NVLD.
Now, 3 weeks into 5th grade...he is having some issues. Has been interupting the class with talking, bothering his classmates with these disruptions. The teacher mentiones that he seems to be having some social issues now, like kids are leaving him out, being mean, etc.
I just wondered if anyone else has been diagnosed with this. I feel quite alone, and I know it is similar to Aspergers and Autism. Anyone? Thanks...
