NDD in Adults
Adults who seek treatment for NDD come from three main sources:
1. Referrals from psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, and other therapists who are familiar with NDD. These patients commonly present to the therapist with a wide range of symptoms – anxiety, depression, previously diagnosed dyslexia, attention problems, panic disorders, obvious under-achievement – or simply are not responding to normally successful treatments and medication.
2. Parents of children who have been in treatment for NDD. In these cases the parents recognize familiar symptoms and patterns they have experienced themselves. They are further encouraged by the changes they see in their children.
3. Readers who have seen an article about NDD and identify symptoms that still persist for them. Most commonly, they have a reading comprehension disorder, rather than a learning disability or have been unsuccessfully treated with medication for ADD.
