An NVLD Neuropsychological Assessment Can Help Parents and Children in Northern, NJ
It’s always worrying for parents when their child continues to display inappropriate behavior, despite good discipline. Discovering that your child appears unable to make or keep friendships can also be difficult to deal with, particularly when they don’t seem to meet all the criteria necessary for an autism diagnosis. In these sorts of circumstances, it could be the case that a Non-Visible Learning Difficulty (NVLD) neuropsychological testing process could be warranted.
How Can an NVLD Neuropsychological Evaluation Help?
Because the causes of NVLD are poorly understood and the symptoms quite diverse, the problems children are experiencing can often be written off as poor behavior or defiance. Particularly in educational settings, this can lead to children being labeled as naughty or poorly parented, when the reality is that it is the NVLD which is the underlying cause. A full assessment by a reputable NVLD neuropsychological consultant can make all the difference, providing an authoritative statement which gives parents the evidence they need to request assistance from a variety of sources.
