Typical Development and Intellectual/Developmental Disabilities

All children develop at different speeds. However, some children experience global delays in achieving developmental milestones. These children sometimes have cognitive limitations which impact their ability to succeed in school and manage tasks by themselves in other areas. In some cases, genetic disorders are responsible for these issues.
