Event description

Description

Nonverbal learning disabilities (NLD) are often misdiagnosed and misunderstood, and may not be recognized by schools. Finding effective treatment and supports is a real challenge. Dr. Marcia Eckerd will provide strategies on how to parent a child with NLD, who may learn to read and memorize with ease, yet face challenges in social, organizational, and motor skills. She will discuss how to handle these children’s inflexibility and cope with social challenges.

Marcia Eckerd, Ph.D., is a clinical psychologist trained extensively in psychotherapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), mind-body medicine, and neuropsychological testing for children and adults. As Director of Clinical Programs of the New Learning Therapy Center, Dr. Eckerd created a social skills program, and her blog, Divergent Thinkers: Aspergers, NLD & More is featured on Psych Central.
