Summary

In Nonverbal Learning Disabilities: The Syndrome and the Model, the "white matter" model was designed to encompass the complex manifestations and neurophysiological underpinnings of the NLD syndrome. Now, evidence that bears upon the white matter model has been gathered into a single volume. Building upon his previous work on NLD, Rourke explores the ramifications of NLD in the neuropsychology of learning disabilities and in pediatric neurological disease, disorder, and dysfunction.
