Facts on Common Developmental Conditions
- Children with ADHD/ADD often present with hyperactivity, inattentiveness and weak impulse control. The symptoms will improve with medication and behavioural modification training.
- Children with ASD often have weakly integrated eye contact, low communication intention, language impairment, as well as rigid cognition. They may demonstrate repetitive sensory-craving behaviour. The symptoms will improve with Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA), speech therapy and sensory integration training.
- Since symptoms of neurodevelopmental conditions often overlap and co-morbid, your child will need a developmental assessment as early as possible in order to plan the tailor-made intervention.
