This summarized paper discusses the Nonverbal Learning Disabilities syndrome & the practical consequences in adulthood e.g. choosing jobs requiring abilities which are notably deficient in these individuals; a virtual inability to assess their problems; marked deficiencies in the appreciation of subtle & even fairly obvious nonverbal communication, with consequent social disdain & rejection. Depression & suicide attempts are greater than average in individuals exhibiting this syndrome. (GW)
