Learning disorders are changes in the central nervous system in children with normal intelligence without sensory changes, with adequate quality of life and appropriate teaching methods. The nonverbal learning disorder is a specific change in the functioning of the nervous system, characterized by marked losses in mathematical reasoning, visospatial cognition, motor skills, sensory perception and social skills. Recent studies point to changes in the white matter in the cortico-cortical connections of the right hemisphere, related to the impairment of functions involved in the disorder. However, the diagnosis is essentially clinical, identified by the presence of a number of criteria, marked by the discrepancy of verbal skills and non-verbal, with deficits primary, secondary and tertiary of order, that affect the domains of cognition and interfere with learning. Often, children with nonverbal learning disorders to bolster in the preserved verbal skills to, by compensatory way, deal with the difficulties inherent to the condition.
