WHAT IS NEURO DEVELOPMENTAL DELAY?
Neuro Developmental Delay (NDD) is a term used to describe an immature and underdeveloped nervous and reflex system. If not dealt with, the physical inabilities will lead to frustration, hyperactivity, stress, hypersensitivity and later on emotional problems. The problem can affect your child’s physical capabilities and manifest itself as a learning, coordination or behavioral problem.
The underdeveloped reflexes interfere with the subsequent motor development, visual functioning, hand eye coordination and perceptual skills of the child.
If the problem persists to adulthood the symptoms include agraphobia, excessive reaction to stimulii, anxiety, panic attacks, difficulty making decisions and poor self esteem. If you recognise and or are concerned about any of the listed areas then it is worth discussing them with a trained Neuro Developmental Therapist.
