What Are Developmental Disorders?

Developmental Disorder Speech Therapy

Developmental disorders are a group of disorders that occur during early childhood. These include but are not limited to language disorders, autism spectrum disorders, Attention Deficit Disorder, learning disorders, and motor disorders.

How Do I Know If My Child Has a Developmental Disorder?

It is common for children with developmental disorders to follow a different developmental trajectory than their peers, which can lead to communication disorders.

Children with a developmental disorder may exhibit the following symptoms and if you notice any of these early signs, contact your child’s pediatrician immediately to make an appointment to assess for developmental disorders.

  • Speech delay
  • Language delay
  • Lack of eye contact
  • Disinterest in social interaction
  • Difficulty following directions
  • Inability to focus on activities
  • Coordination difficulties

What Causes Developmental Disorders to Occur?

While it is difficult to pinpoint the exact cause of developmental delays, research suggests that genetic and environmental factors may contribute to the emergence of certain developmental disorders.
