Look up non verbal learning disability. The profile is someone whose verbal IQ is significantly higher than performance IQ. It's a frequent occurrence in ASD but can also be a stand alone diagnosis. It's sometimes referred to as an atypical learning disability. My son was recently diagnosed with ASD...

I'm sure not an expert, but my guess is that the neuropsychiatrist will do the ADOS, which can give you an answer on ASD. The neuropsychologist is likely planning on doing a full IQ test and maybe the ADOS, too. The benefit of the cognitive/IQ testing is that it should give you a really good idea of...

My son (17) was recently diagnosed with NVLD by a clinical psychologist based on the (vast) difference in his verbal IQ and performance IQ. The IQ subtests are tests of abilities. However, I don't know if the difference in the OP's scores are enough to qualify for a diagnosis.

I homeschooled my ASD1/gifted son from second grade through eighth grade. There are so many homeschooling resources available nowadays that it's really not hard. It also doesn't have to be socially isolating. Depending on how common (or not) homeschooling is in your area you may find that there are ...
