Neurodevelopmental Disorders

Neurodevelopmental disorder is a mental disorder which mostly a disorder of brain function which disturbs emotion, learning ability, self-control and memory. 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. Children with neurodevelopmental disorders can face problems with language and speech, motor skills, behavior, memory, learning, or other neurological functions. 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.
