Neurodevelopmental disorders are disabilities associated primarily with the functioning of the neurological system and brain. Examples of neurodevelopmental disorders in children include attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), autism, learning disabilities, intellectual disability, cerebral palsy, and impairments in vision and hearing. Children with neurodevelopmental disorders can experience difficulties with language and speech, motor skills, behaviour, memory, learning, and/or other neurological functions. The Neurodevelopment and Behavioural Clinic at Al Jalila Children’s works closely with the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Centre to provide extensive support to children and their families.
