My 11 year old was just diagnosed with NLD. I am very worried about her socially. Right now she gets by but I know it will change in the teen years. How can I help her?

I work with people who have learning disabilities. I've never heard of "Non-verbal Learning Disability" as a condition in itself. We have clients that are unable to speak, therefore they do not communicate verbally, they've never been able to speak but find other ways to communicate.

So when you say she's "just" been diagnosed, at the age of 11 with this condition, I don't understand.

Please explain some more.
