Neurodevelopmental Disorders

A group of disorders that affect the development of Nervous system leading to abnormal brain function. These types of disorders usually disturbs emotion, learning ability, self-control and it lasts for entire lifetime of a person. These disorders are understood to be likely the combination of Genetic, Psychological, biological and environmental factors. Neurodevelopmental disorders in children comprise attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), autism, learning disabilities, intellectual disability (also known as mental retardation), conduct disorders, cerebral palsy, and impairments in vision and hearing. While the symptoms and behaviors of neurodevelopmental disabilities often change or evolve as a child grows older, some disabilities are lasting. Diagnosis and treatment of these conditions can be difficult; treatment often involves a combination of professional therapy, pharmaceuticals, and home- and school-based programs.
