It’s critical, however, not to over-focus on your challenges. Research has shown us that those with attentional and/or learning differences often have areas of tremendous talents that are overshadowed by their challenges. Our interdisciplinary team will work with you to recognize your strengths and support you in your growth. This process may involve neuropsychological testing, career counseling, medication management, individual, group or family therapy. "

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

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 Potomac or Potomac developmental issues. Try a Potomac child therapist, Potomac facility or Potomac treatment program.
