Description

Raising NLD Superstars is essential reading for all those who come in to contact with children with non-verbal learning disorders (NLD). Instead of insisting upon the one size fits all model of intervention the author focuses on the individual nature of NLD children and offers practical, adaptable advice that will help them find their place both in the family and in wider social groups.

The author shares her experiences of life as the parent of a child with NLD with humanity and humor.

The book will help parents and carers to support children with NLD to reach their emotional and cognitive potential while taking into account the views and experiences of other family members.

Reviews

'Rubinstien writes with passion and humour, and the book is quite a compelling read because of this. Information about NLD filters through, but mainly the book is like a supportive friend-someone who helps because they know what you are going through. All home educators know the value of shared experiences, so if you have a child with NLD this book will be an encouragement.'
