In this book I give a first person account of my struggles as a child, teen and young adult battling with NVLD before professionals realized it existed. These detailed accounts of my life will resonate with NVLDers and those who love them. The purpose of this book is to help parents, adults, teachers and therapists recognize the symptoms of NVLD while providing the necessary tools to assist them with coping and achieving success.
