Developmental Disabilities (DD) are a group of long-term conditions which can impact children in everyday living. They not only affect children physically, but how they learn, the way they communicate, and their behaviors. The child may be experiencing difficulty adjusting to change in their environment or may have difficulty with self-care. Some youth might also exhibit self-injury or aggressive behavior. Examples of developmental disabilities may include Autism, Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, or a Brain Injury.
