Statements like the following are often true of individuals with a nonverbal learning disability:They talk a lot but really say very little. They see the "trees" not the "forest." They focus on details, do not apprehend the main idea. They do not "see the whole picture." They do not "read" facial expressions, gestures, or other nonverbal aspects of communication; they miss the subtleties, nuances. They may be inappropriate in their social interactions. They have few friends; friendships tend to be with older or younger persons rather than peers. They tend to process information in a linear, sequential fashion, not seeing multiple dimensions. In spite of relative strength in sequencing or recalling sequences, they may confuse abstract temporal concepts; they have significant difficulty recognizing cause-effect relationships. They frequently "shut down" when faced with pressure to perform; such pressure might come from too many simultaneous demands, from tasks which seem too complex, or from expectations to perform at a rate which seems too rapid. As adults they tend to be underemployed relative to their educational experiences.
