Children social developmental Disorders
The term "pervasive developmental disorders, " also called PDDs, refers to a group of conditions that involve delays in the development of many basic skills. Most notable among them are the ability to socialize with others, to communicate, and to use imagination. Children with these conditions often are confused in their thinking and generally have problems understanding the world around them.
Because these conditions typically are identified in children around 3 years of age - a critical period in a child's development - they are called developmental disorders. The condition actually starts far earlier than age 3, but parents often do not notice a problem until the child is a toddler who is still not walking, talking, or developing in the ways other children of the same age are.
Autism Spectrum Disorders
The forms of autism are thought to overlap considerably. But the fact that there is wide variation in symptoms among children with autism led to the concept of autism spectrum disorder.
Autism seems to be on the rise, and autism spectrum disorders affect between two and six children out of every 1, 000 in the U.S. It's unclear, though, whether the growing incidence of autism represents a real increase or just improved detection.
