Nonverbal Learning Disability (NVLD)
Neuropsychology identifies nonverbal learning disability (NVLD) as having significant deficits in visual processing, especially visual-spatial abilities, and visualization (executive function). These deficits largely affect an individual with NVLD in math, gross motor, fine motor, handwriting legibility, planning, problem-solving, and communication skills. These symptoms can be identified from nonverbal cues such as facial expression or body language. As a result, these deficits often leads to social and emotional problems as well.
Nonverbal Learning Disability (NVLD) Treatment
For those with NVLD, Wow Vision Therapy provides a comprehensive model of vision therapy. We target and remediate the visual-spatial processing, as well as, the executive and visual motor deficits. Our goal is to remediate the cause of the “disability” by helping our patients gain better function in math, handwriting, reading fluency, comprehension, learning in the classroom and foster accelerated development of social skills and improved confidence through vision development.
