Children with nonverbal learning disabilities (NVLD) suffer from a number of symptoms, affecting many aspects of their lives, which are grouped into neuropsychological, academic, and social-emotional adjustment deficits. The social deficits include social perception and social interaction problems which in many cases results in more serious problems of delinquency, anxiety, depression, and suicide (Roman, 1998). Treatment, including classroom treatment, of this group of children requires an accurate assessment of the problem. This research paper will present literature regarding the social maladjustment of NVLD children.
