Neurodevelopmental Disabilities

You’ve probably heard a physician use the term Neurodevelopmental disabilities at some point. So, what does it mean? It’s actually very simple, it just means that the disabilities occur in the nervous system (brain, spinal cord and the nerves) and include Autism, Cerebral Palsy and Down syndrome and other genetic syndromes. The disabilities typically involve some type of delay in development that is detected in early childhood.
