Most teachers will at some point come across a child with nonverbal learning disabilities, and this practical and informative book will be invaluable in helping them to help such children to achieve their full potential in the classroom.
Topics such as finding the right school, curriculum modifications, and social and emotional issues experienced by children with NLD are covered. However, the bulk of the book outlines specific teaching strategies, from how to deal with essay questions, to tips on helping the student master long division and ideas for improving reading comprehension. The author defines and discusses concepts such as frontloading and a cooperative learning environment, and discusses how they benefit the student with NLD.
