I will certainly re-read this intersting and practical book which I recommend to EP and clinical colleagues and other professionals such as speech therapists.`

Clearly, Maggie Mamen has in-depth knowledge and understanding of the particular strengths and weaknesses of individuals with NLDS. Maggie Mamen's attitude to her subject is both positive and optimistic, based upon current research yet with a practical and common-sense approach for parents and teachers to follow. Her book can be recommended to all those involved with NLD children as a useful addition to current publications.

It is relevant to education staff, and the importance of speech and language therapy input is also highlighted. The book covers assessment and further devides nonverbal learning disabilities into subgroups; perceptual, social, written expressive and attentional. It contains easy to read chapters on management strategies and useful websites.
