Neurodevelopmental Disorders

Neurodevelopmental Disorders are a group of diseases that affect the development of the nervous system and brain, causing difficulties in learning, communication, and behavior. These disorders are usually present from birth or begin in early childhood. The most common neurodevelopmental disorders include autism spectrum disorder, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), intellectual disability, and specific learning disabilities. These disorders can have a significant impact on a person's academic, social, and emotional functioning.

causes of neurodevelopmental disorders are complex and may include a combination of genetic, environmental, and biological factors. Early diagnosis and intervention are important to help people with neurodevelopmental disorders reach their full potential.
