Pervasive Developmental Disorders
Pervasive development disorders affect the development of basic skills in a child, including the ability to communicate, imagination and socializing with others. Other symptoms include general confusion and problems understanding the world and how it works. Treatment for pervasive developmental disorders is available with guided therapy and counseling. Before we show how online therapy here at GoMentor.com can help with pervasive developmental disorders, here is a little more information about the different types of this disorder that exist and some of the symptoms that may be seen.
Types of Pervasive Developmental Disorders
These are the main types of pervasive developmental disorders that affect people.
- Autistic Disorder - This is a neurological and developmental disorder that usually appears within the first three years of life and causes a child to seem to be "in their own world."
- Autism - This causes neural development in children that is characterized by impaired social interaction and communication.
- Rett's Disorder - This is a neurodevelopmental disorder that affects gray matter of the brain, resulting in small hands, feet, and slow head growth. Other mental and developmental problems may occur as well.
- Childhood Disintegrative Disorder - When a child develops normally for the first three to four years of their life then begins to have learning or social interaction problems, it is referred to as childhood disintegrative disorder.
- Asperger's Disorder - This variation of an autistic disorder could be said to be said to be a milder form of that developmental disorder.
- Unspecified Pervasive Developmental Disorder - When a child shows symptoms of two or more of the developmental disorders listed above, they are said to have unspecified pervasive developmental disorder because of the inability to categorize it under any of the other known types.
Symptoms of Pervasive Developmental Disorders
While the symptoms are going to be different depending on the particular type of developmental disorder, these are some of the common signs that there may be a problem.
- Poor interaction with others and problems socially are signs that a pervasive developmental disorder may be a problem.
- Poor communication skills is another symptoms of a developmental disorder that may appear in childhood.
- Repetitive behaviors and the need for strict routines and rituals to be able to function are other signs that a pervasive developmental disorder might be present.
- Screaming fits and other behavior problems may indicate a problem with a pervasive developmental disorder.
- Panic attacks - when seen in conjunction with the other symptoms - is another sign of a pervasive developmental disorder.
- Teeth grinding and other physical signs may be present as well.
- Lack of eye contact and seeming to be "in their own world" is a sign that a child might have a pervasive developmental disorder.
- Social problems like making friends with children of the same age is another sign of a pervasive developmental disorder.
As you can see, there is a wide array of symptoms that may appear. If they do, getting a proper diagnosis is important. If it is found that a pervasive developmental disorder is a problem, getting treatment is recommended.
