What are Neurodevelopmental Disorders?

Neurodevelopmental disorders are a group of conditions that affect the development of the nervous system, including the brain, spinal cord, and nerves. These disorders typically emerge during the developmental period and can result in difficulties with behavior, learning, communication, and social interaction.

Examples of neurodevelopmental disorders include autism spectrum disorder, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), specific learning disorders such as dyslexia, intellectual disability, and Tourette syndrome. These disorders are usually diagnosed in childhood but may continue into adulthood.

Neurodevelopmental disorders can have a range of causes, including genetic, environmental, and biological factors. Treatment for these disorders typically involves a combination of therapies, such as behavioral interventions, medications, and educational support, to help individuals manage their symptoms and improve their quality of life.
