What parents and teachers should know about non-verbal learning disabilities

from The Conversation (commentary)

Barbara Rissman, a contributor for The Conversation, writes: "When my daughter was in Year 10 at a private girls' school, I got the call that every parent dreads — a summons to the deputy's office.

The school could no longer meet my daughter's learning needs and she had to leave. Life at her new school was much harder, both in the classroom and socially. One day my daughter told a teacher that she'd shoot herself if she had a gun. There was something wrong, yet for years, no one could put a name to my daughter's condition." more
