Neurodevelopmental Disorders

What are Neurodevelopmental Disorders? These are “a group of heterogeneous conditions characterized by delay or disturbance in the acquisition of skills in a variety of developmental domains, these include motor, social, language, and cognition.” The great diversity of neurodevelopmental disorders is reflected in the fact that some of those affected show specific deficits that do not prevent them from having an independent and fulfilling life. However, others will need lifelong assistance with basic living skills necessary for independent living, such as the ability to walk and feed oneself. There is no known reason for these disorders but it can be speculated that genetics, prenatal, perinatal and postnatal are all causes of these disorders.
