Article on NLD

Coverage of Nonverbal Learning Disorder is generally sporadic, probably because it is not yet listed in the DSM Diagnostoc Statistical Manaual). Here's a decent article, with a rather unfortunate headline.
"Coworkers do not understand why people who are smart and educated have problems with tasks such as managing a classroom or assisting customers. Teachers and parents often cry out in frustration, "If you're so smart, why can't you..." or "I shouldn't have to tell you!" But you do have to tell them, because people with nonverbal learning disability often don't learn by observation, and have trouble learning and doing the simple, everyday things most people take for granted.
