by Wright, Brian, Ed.D., Nova Southeastern University, 2015, 105; 10238974
Abstract (Summary)

This applied dissertation will provide a deeper understanding of how high school students with nonverbal learning disabilities perceive themselves. Persons with nonverbal learning disabilities are defined primarily through performance measures with less qualitative information available. In this study, high school students identified with nonverbal learning disabilities will have the opportunity to voice their feelings about their disability.

The researcher developed open-ended questions about nonverbal learning disabilities and how it has impacted the students. Information was gathered through a narrative format and transcribed. Information was coded for important themes.
