Developmental Concerns & Symptoms

Developmental concerns include delays or abnormal patterns of development in the areas of communication/language, motor skills, problem-solving or social and adaptive behavior. These concerns are usually based on comparison to other children the same age. Many children with developmental concerns have problems in several areas. Children with developmental concerns may be evaluated by a neurodevelopmental pediatrician, child neurologist, or other physician to assess for underlying disorders or medical conditions that may lead to the developmental concerns. Evaluations by specialists in speech-language pathology, physical therapy, occupational therapy and neuropsychology are often important to understanding and treating these problems.
