Living with NonVerbal Learning Disability

My journey started when I came into this world by the lovely parents of Sam and Marica Lundy on August 25th, 1985. I was born in Cooper Hospital in Camden, New Jersey. Although I was a tough baby, I struggled with many things. My parents did not know that later, their son would have a Nonverbal Learning Disability. At the age of 5, I was tested and officially diagnosed. A Nonverbal Learning Disability is a neurological condition marked by a collection of academic and sometimes, social difficulties.

Autistic Masking

Masking involves intentionally learning neurotypical behaviors and mimicking them in social situations. Girls tend to mask early on as they want to be like their peers, they want to have friends. This, however, is part of the reason girls slip under the radar and aren’t often diagnosed until their late teens or as an adult.
