Responds to comments by J M Fletcher (see PA, vol 76:22843), B Kowalchuk & J D King (see PA, vol 76:22853) & E D Bigler (see PA, vol 76:22836) on the predisposing link between nonverbal learning disability (NLD) & suicide posited by the present author & colleagues (see PA, vol 76:22863). It is argued that the 3 critiques prove the heuristic value of the link between NLD & suicide.
