This serial presents a scholarly view of research into the causes, effects, classification systems and syndromes of developmental disabilities. Contributors to this series come from wide-ranging perspectives, including genetics, psychology, education and other health and behavioral sciences. In specific developmental disorders, a child has one or more skills, for instance language, reading, motor coordination or spelling, that are delayed or develop at a slower pace than other skills. There are also pervasive developmental disorders in which the distortion and delay of a child's functioning is manifested in a more global manner.
This book is a must-have for all researchers in genetics, developmental biology, regenerative medicine, and stem cell biology. • Includes new research not previously published in any other book on the molecular genetic processes that regulates development • Chapters present a broad understanding on the application of animal model systems Author: Sally Moody. “This outstanding book, which provides one of the most contemporary and authoritative life-span perspectives of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, will be an invaluable resource for the full range of people, including families, who support this population.
Developmental disability is a diverse group of chronic conditions that are due to mental or physical impairments that arise before adulthood. Developmental disabilities cause individuals living with them many difficulties in certain areas of life, especially in "language, mobility, learning, self-help, and independent living". Developmental disabilities can be detected early on and persist Specialty: Psychiatry. Intellectual disability and developmental delay encompass a heterogeneous group of disorders that have a negative impact on the physical, emotional, behavioral, and intellectual development of an individual. These can be caused by genetic and nongenetic factors and can lead to syndromic or nonsyndromic intellectual and developmental disability.
