Age-related development in children is of great importance. Its height and weight should be in the range of values that should develop depending on the age. Likewise, social and emotional skills should be commensurate with age. Child development is not only physical, mental development is also of great importance.
What Causes Developmental Disorder?
Biological and environmental factors
Physical and mental development may depend on biological factors, as well as changes depending on environmental factors. Environmental factors are at least as important as biological factors. Poor and malnutrition, irregular and inadequate sleep are among the environmental factors. Since regular and adequate nutrition and sleep affect growth hormones, every child should have adequate nutrition and regular sleep so thatthey do not have trouble in their development.
In child development, it is as important in psychological factors as in biological and environmental factors. Developmental disorders can be seen in children who do not receive enough attention by their parents. The games that are important for the mental development of the child and the activities in which they can develop their skills are of great importance for the positive development of the mental development.
Symptoms of developmental disorders in children
- Height and weight development are behind compared to age
- Walking delay
- Lack of skills such as running
- Delay in speaking
- Retardation in social skills
- Furious and vicious behavior
Such symptoms are among the most prominent features of the developmental disorder. Retardation in height and weight, delay in walking and speaking, regression in social skills and anger reflected in behavior may be a harbinger of impairment. If these symptoms are seen, a specialist doctor should be consulted.
The best way to prevent developmental disorders in children is through regular doctor checks. Parents may not want to admit that their children have developmental disorders. For this reason, a specialist doctor opinion is needed.
