Autism spectrum disorder (ASD), attention deficit disorder (ADD), and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) are all considered neurodevelopmental conditions. These are disabilities associated with the brain and neurological system.
Children and adults with neurodevelopmental disorders usually experience issues with:
ADD and ADHD are both conditions that cause persistent problems, such as difficulty concentrating and impulsive behavior. Often children with ADD and ADHD struggle with low self-esteem and poor performance in school.
Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a condition referring to a wide range of neurological developmental problems that impact a person’s ability to perceive and socialize with others. This causes varying degrees of communication and social issues. Asperger’s, once seen a separate disorder, is now understood to be on the mild end of the autism spectrum.
These conditions impact each child and family differently, and the right approach to healing is unique for each one.
