Nonverbal Learning Challenges

Simply stated, Nonverbal Learning Disability (NLD), affects an individual's ability to read and interpret nonverbal communication such as body language, social cues, sarcasm, and facial expressions. It DOES NOT mean that the individual is not able to speak. Girls and women with TS tend to have excellent verbal skills. The challenge lies within the realm of nonverbal communication. This can affect her in school, interpersonal relationships, and even on the job. 


Many girls and women with TS will exhibit characteristic signs of NLD to varying degrees. Early intervention and understanding can help them to manage these challenges as they occur in daily life.
