The National Institute of Health estimates that one in 100 children suffer from nonverbal learning disorder (NLD) and one in 5,000 children have Asperger's. This book, written by an expert in the subject, is the only step-by-step guide for parents with kids who suffer from these conditions. This fully revised and expanded edition of a classic contains a new section on anxiety and social anxiety, as well as specific skills training for social behaviours. Author Kathryn Stewart founded the first college preparatory high school for kids with NLD or Asperger's.
