Describing My NLD Son

As I read the article about NLD, I felt as if you knew my 7 year-old child: precocious, perfectionist, confused, clumsy, verbose, fearful, reckless, literal, naive, tardy, clingy, socially inappropriate, anxious, seems unable to learn from experience, needs to engage others with constant chatter, photographic mind for details, could read the Gettysburg address, but can't tie his shoes, use a scissor, eat comfortably with a fork, ride a bike, draw or write without breaking into tears - with one possible exception: Would my son's (________________ each parent might fill in the blank here) eliminate NLD as a source of his behaviors?
