Developmental Disorders Therapists
'Developmental disorder' is the collective term used to describe the disorders, first diagnosed in a child's infancy or early childhood, which then become more apparent as the kids develop during their childhood and into their teens and adolescence. Like all labels, it means little and is open to interpretation.

The developmental disorders are categorized in to two areas: specific developmental disorders, which affect discrete parts of a kid's development, and the pervasive disorders (e.g. PDD Torrance), which affect multiple developmental basics. The specific developmental disorders include communication disorders, speech and language issues, such as stuttering or lisps in Torrance; learning disorders; and motor function or motor skills disorders, which may include tics or Tourette's in Torrance.

The pervasive developmental disorders (PDDs) include autism, asperger's, attention-deficit and disruptive behavior disorders.

There are other issues that can affect childhood development, which are included in the developmental disorders--such as feeding and eating disorders, elimination disorders, separation anxiety disorder, and reactive attachment disorder.

Look here for help with children, kids or teens with developmental disorders in Torrance or Torrance developmental issues. Try a Torrance child therapist, Torrance facility or Torrance treatment program. These therapists provide help with kids' developmental issues in Torrance, child development, teen development and adolescent development. They include developmental therapists in Torrance, developmental psychologists, developmental counseling and treatment for developmental disorders. They'll also help with problem teens development in Torrance, teenagers development problems in Torrance, Torrance teenage development and teenager developmental issues.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Torrance are able to work with a wide range of issues.

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in Torrance you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in Torrance and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in Torrance or family therapy in Torrance.
