    A useful insight for parents and teachers for children with this, to a certain extent useful for adults too. However what I would love to see is practical guidance for adults who have been diagnosed later in life. I have not seen it yet

    This is the best book I have read about NLD. It offers a lot of practical advise and describes the ways NLD presents in a child's life. It is very positive, instead of the negative view of NLD. It gave me hope.
