I'm new here and I was wondering if anyone has non verbal learning disorder. I was diagnosed with it in August 2010 and wanted to know if I was the only one on here with it. The clinical psychologist that tested me for AS said I was not in the spectrum. I then told her I recognized myself more in N...

My VIQ is 17 points higher than my PIQ, but my Vocabulary index score is 35 points higher than my Perceptual Reasoning index score. I think that says volumes more than my VIQ vs. PIQ. Mainly because arithmetic, which I'm not good at, is part of VIQ, and symbol coding, which I'm great at, is part of...

Yes I had a discrepancy in verbal and non-verbal IQ of 32 points or so and I have had an MRI and PET CT scan to determine if the visual spatial deficits showed up there. The PET CT showed hypometabolism in the left posterior parietal lobe which shows the reason why I have visual spatial deficits. P...

Her general processing speed abilities were in the borderline range and her lowest scores. Her ability to process visual...

While I love Tyri0n's description "trapped in a cloud, driving down the road trying not to run over pedestrians" (it is actually very similar to explanations I have given people of walking through a fog), I disagree that people with NLD are NTs. I find I have many things in common with Aspies, and ...

people with avoidant personality disorder fear failure so much they never try unless they know they will do well. I have avoidant personality traits listed as deferred on my psychological evaluation and I honestly don't think I have a personality disorder. I attribute them to my social anxiety diso...

I actually read an article where it says that people on the spectrum can shut down and show absolutely no emotion because we have may overempathize too much. I think it varies on the individual.

I find that my antidepressant works for my constant stimming (hand wringing). I'm inclined to believe that issue is related to anxiety.

I believe Christ did exist as a human being but I do not think he was the son of God.

I'm interested in the hippie culture of the 60's. I like tye dye and psychedelic music.

The majority of the music is great to listen to when you're stoned. :lol:

Therapists can't diagnose you and only help treat the condition. The only people that are qualified are psychologists. I make eye contact but when someone is talking to me, I make eye contact with another person other than the speaker. I also don't like it when people stare at me but I stare at them.

I'm pretty sure I overthink ideas and when I try to articulate them, they don't make sense to anyone at all. I embarrassed myself in front of my writing instructor today doing that and I wanted to cry.

How often should an individual with nonverbal learning disability or an autism spectrum disorder get evaluated by a psychologist? The last one I saw was over three years ago and I only saw him twice; once for my assessment and once for letting me know what my diagnosis was (although I didn't get off...
