'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 Washington), which affect multiple developmental basics. The specific developmental disorders include communication disorders, speech and language issues, such as stuttering or lisps in Washington; learning disorders; and motor function or motor skills disorders, which may include tics or Tourette's in Washington.

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

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
