I wonder if NVLD is the same as Executive Function Deficits?
Comment from : Debra Wehrly

I'm trying to get help finding a specialist or research center in regards to reversing an execuitive function disorder I was diagnosed with ADHD, but skipped further testing for Autism My learning disability limits me in communication and comprehension, I also have NVLD with aphantasia I figured out how to reverse the learning disability and can access my intrapersonal communication that allows me to think to myself, learn, recall memories and communicate on a very deep level I can finally feel emotions, read people, and communicate at length I'm trying to find a specialist in the southern California area, Ive exhausted myself trying to do this on my own

Austin Holmes
I'm going to be 25, in first grade I was diagnosed with ADHD (Here in the US, it's called an IEP in math and science) which I believe they misdiagnosed me saying that I did not have NVLD, this shockingly opened my eyes to get re-evaluated Thank you so much for sharing your story Seriously ❤

Excellent story Abby I have nonverbal learning disability as well and know exactly how it is My vocational high school quizzes and tests were a challenge no matter how much I studied Had to retake things so many times and if I was lucky I'd pass by the skin of my teeth the first time Had an IEP and that gave me a little more time on quizzes and tests that's it Plugged away 4 school years and couldn't be more proud to be a vocational high school grad

Richard Blackmore
I also got diagnosed with Nonverbal Learning disability, at the same time as I got the ADHD diagnosis, in high school But I am starting to lose my belief in the NVLD diagnosis I have noticed the traits are very vague and too easily manipulable For instance, when I was a kid and a teenager I was told I had no sense of humor and didn’t understand jokes In hind sight I recognize that isn’t the truth at all I had no ability to articulate it at the time, but part of the problem is I am British/A,Eric an, and was raised in Germany I later moved to the US when I was 12 My sense of humor was very European British humor is very cerebral There is a lot of subtext A lot more than in American humor American humor is very literal (I know that most Americans vehemently disagree) What I mean is, when an American comedian tells a joke, the joke is in the words When a British comedian tells a joke, what is funny is not the words, but the idea being expressed For instance, Eddie Izzard’s joke about the tiger in the subway If you are looking for the joke in the literal words you won’t understand the joke The words themselves aren’t funny What Izard is doing is making fun of how British people communicate no verbally To a hilarious extent Another example is in Month Python Flying Circus, where they are climbing up a side walk, as if they were mountain climbing A lot of my American peers don’t understand the joke Much of Monty Python is nonverbal after all The joke is doing something that has no purpose Literally climbing a horizontal sidewalk I have always preferred British humor A bit odd considering NVLD people are supposed to not pick up on nonverbal stuff Texting is a horrible metric as most people agree that it is the worst form of communication, for everyone, not just people with NVLD A lot of the other traits were there Difficulty tying my shoes, with math, etc I’m on the fence though, as a lot of the most vital traits I either don’t have at all, or they are too convenient and everyone has them

Radio Mandelbrot
interesting, I was under the impression, as apparently even lots of professionals are, that problems with interpreting nonverbal language was necessarily linked to ASD Good to know it's not the only thing that can cause that

Hello from Mississauga Ontario My son was diagnosed with speech delay and other learning disabilities at age of 3 as well He is 7 and with the Covid situation And opting for online learning im not sure how I can help him

Melanie Vallejo
this explains why psychologists thought I was autistic because I did use to talk before but at a certain point I stopped talking completely from ages 3-7 for so many years and now I talk fine Maybe it wasn’t my right time to talk yet I still get annoyed that I kept telling my family its a misdiagnosis because growing up I didn’t “act” autistic not even now I act that way, I think maybe I had anxiety which made me stop talking or some sort of nonverbal thing I had The autism thing always felt like a misdiagnosis to me
Comment from : Melanie Vallejo

Kaitlyn Norris
I’m an introvert with nvld, imagine how that works brbrbrbrI also have Anxiety, Dyslexia, and depression brbrbrNo, I’m not self diagnosed I have gone through the proper testing and everything I could get diagnosed till 2 nd grade though so I just thought I was stupid

Maggie T
Oh my gosh! The texting thing hit the nail on the head for me I have so much trouble inferring tone through a text message! So there have been many times I can't figure out if people are being sarcastic, saying something jokingly or being genuine

bpa23 📦 bpa23+
Wow crazy, from the impression and nonverbal cues I could figure in the first 55 seconds nope that woman cant be aspergers or on the spectrum Also the language sounded to lets say "normal" But real doctors misdiagnosed? Hmm the criteria must have been old or it was bad timing
Comment from : bpa23 📦 bpa23+

This is so beautiful I couldn’t relate more if I wanted to Thanks for sharing, Abby Please keep sharing your story and being awesome Best of luck on your journey!

David Baum
Women tell me I come off as not confident It’s all part of my NVLD I wish people would just except my very kind and caring side of me and except I’m just a little weird in other ways, but they can’t I sometime just say things I shouldn’t say
Comment from : David Baum

David Baum
People with NVLD can read a whole book,but can not explain the main detail of the book
Comment from : David Baum

David Baum
The biggest problem with me is controlling my mouth I’m actually very good at texting,but sometimes on dates I talk to much and or I can’t hold a interview like date
Comment from : David Baum

David Baum
Also people with NVLD are naturally more attractive I been told by many women I’m very attractive When I talk to women on the phone they run after my caring and kind self witch is part of NVLD, but when I go on dates my mouth destroys the date I dont stop complaining etc I speak my mind I ruined dates with people that I was so attracted too
Comment from : David Baum

David Baum
You don’t have ADHD I have NVLD and people with NVLD are naturally hyper like myself, but at the same time I’m very organized Sometime medicine does not work to keep me calm

aine kline
I also have nvld The first person who tested me told my parents that I was just bored in class I didn't get diagnosed till I was 9 I'm glad there are others besides me with it and I'm not alone Also I got held back in kindergarten because I couldn't understand what was going on
Comment from : aine kline

This is literally my story
Comment from : Luke

Thank you for helping to bring awareness to nld I was diagnosed when I was little and I have trouble putting my experience into words This video made me cry Hang in there
Comment from : Devon

Jasper Casella
I have NVLD to, but for me texting feels like a welcome relief from having to read body language, filling in awkward spaces in conversationsbrI also find starting conversations vary tricky so for me it’s nice to start with a text Although I have had the “are they mad or not” problem with texting
Comment from : Jasper Casella

I cry watching this video I'm 44 and am just beginning to understand I've had learning disabilities that were never diagnosed until a few months ago It has had a major effect on my personal and professional experiences my entire life Abby I'm so proud of your honesty, strength, and self-awareness I know from experience you must have self-awareness of how you learn, especially in the workplace, where employers and co-workers can be quite cruel to people who do not learn and think the way they do
Comment from : Private

Comment from : Luke

I have nld I struggle not with non verbal movements from other people Instead I struggle with my own non verbal movements I'm the introverted version and I don't mean to stand far away from people and jump in fear when they brush up against me Learning to drive take driving lessons from a old pro It will save your life Learn how not to get lost by using anchor visuals like stores and malls to find your way Being aware and preparing beforehand for your possible errors is key And another thing learn numerology it gives meaning to numbers

Hi Abby, I've noticed you live in the same area as me I'm in my 30's and I'd like to get diagnosed properly What tips do you have?
Comment from : Erin

Bradly Leonard
I've lived with nvld my whole life and I've always felt misunderstood
Comment from : Bradly Leonard

They say that when you have this disorder, you have trouble reading body language But is it possible that in some people, this manifest as an unawareness of the body language signals you yourself are giving off, instead?
Comment from : Melissa0774

Thank you! I have this too Your story is so helpful and inspiring Keep on doing what your doing😄❤️🦋🦋🌸🌈🌈🌈
Comment from : sunflowerskies3939-

I plan on asking my doctor about thisI have Turners Syndrome and have researched about it and found the girls tend to have NVLD I have a feeling I do have itI’m kinda nervous I want to be a nurse and I always feel like I’m clumsy and in the way I can’t drive yet and panic with vague instruction I hope I can get some help if I do and feel more confident in my future

It's a DISABILITY Most with NVLD are unemployed or under employed

Rose B
I meant like nvld is not just a social problems Wouldnt also impact understanding academics Especially with subjects that involve visual spatial concepts such as geography Language arts wich involve understanding the overall big picture of a literary work or reading between the lines ( skills that use the right part of brain) understanding the pragmatics of language such as metaphores etc ( versus grammer and rules which apparently would be nvlders strenth since it is more rule based) i am surprised no nvld videos on you tube have coommented about academic struggles
Comment from : Rose B

Rose B
when I tried to learn piano I found it helpful to lable the notes with letters cde… the teacher must half thought I was crazy
Comment from : Rose B

Rose B
what about geography like space? time zones?
Comment from : Rose B

Rose B
how do does the subject language arts in school not be impacted by nvld? I mean the grammar should not be an issue beacuse nvlders tend to be good at language vocabulary and rules but reading between the lines in story or literary work understanding metaphors poetry getting into the authors mind and answering questions like why do you think the author wrote this how do you handle that in school?

Geo BignTall
Hi I’ve been struggling with this for years People don’t understand what it’s like i fight it everyday I have to work extra hard as I am A carpenter I get soo depressed and I’m even a married man and no one understands the daily battle I play video games to calm myself I forget all the time aa d can’t even remember to lock my doors in the house I need help and I can’t find it It’s almost like people don’t care So I pretend that I’m just normal all the time I don’t like it and I don’t like people because their all about themselves mostly

Have you ever thought maybe there is a wide range of variability on the spectrum of "normal"

Comment from : MJade

Through the Telescope!
She could still be very well on the spectrum Psychologists mostly focus on the stereotypical manifestations of Autism Autism is very vast and wide in itself, and everyone is different, meaning each person experiences varying degrees of symptoms,or not many of the traditional symptoms of Autism at all It also manifests differently in girls and women, I believe she is on the spectrum, as well as having the learning disability that she does
Comment from : Through the Telescope!

Rose Morgenshtern
Hi, thank you for sharing your story, it helps a lot of people to see that they are not alone there is a cure for that? something scientific or something that doctor is checking right now? it's interesting me because of the technology of today

Hello, I would like to say that it is nice to read the commentary of those who share the same disability as me Our disability is an issue that is not well known, and there is no one in the limelight who can represent us and bring those of us together to share information Hopefully more videos like this one are made in the future

Robert Pinto
I have NVLD too I was diagnosed when I was 17 Looking back on many moments in my life I found many times to be very frustrating including school and social situations Having poor depth perception was a huge problem for me, it made me clumsy and I would have a difficult time walking I would bump into people at times or walk to closely catching someone's shoe in front of me It was embarrassing to say the least Also with being able to read body language I have found it tough though ad I have gotten older I have invested time in learning about emotional intelligence and I have scored high on my level of emotional intelligence I have also taken several IQ tests and I fell in the range of having an IQ between 140-150 So if you have NVLD like myself know that I and others are out there looking out for each other I would be happy to share my experiences with anyone
