Developmental disabilities are a group of conditions that affect a person’s ability to learn, communicate, and function in daily life. These conditions may be present at birth or may develop during childhood.
Examples of developmental disabilities include autism spectrum disorder, intellectual disability, and cerebral palsy. Treatment and management of developmental disabilities may involve a range of therapies, including occupational therapy, speech therapy, and behavior therapy.
It is important for individuals with developmental disabilities to receive appropriate support and services to help them achieve their full potential and live as independently as possible.
