I had to write this because so few people have heard of NLD. After all, it isn’t really in the DSM book, and some people want to put every spectrum disorder together and call them all the same thing. I argue that a more accurate description of NLD is that it falls between AS and ADHD. I don’t particularly like quickly defining NLD, but what I usually say is it’s a specific learning disability that causes a person to have trouble with visual-spatial issues. I often experience it as more of a neurological condition than anything else, as one side of my brain isn’t caught up with the other side. Some of my first entries on this blog provide further definitions.
