Global Developmental delay occurs when a child exhibits a significant delay in the acquisition of milestones or skills, in all or most of domains of development.
Children with Global developmental delay can be trained and managed with specific attention to achieve improvements in motor functions as well as cognitive skills. Repeated and planned sessions of Physical therapy, Ayurveda, Occupational therapy, speech therapy along with suitable internal medications to enhance brain functions can bring out good results. The procedures taught during sessions must be practiced repeatedly and consistently. The younger the child, better and sooner will be the outcome as per our experience.
What causes developmental delay?
Developmental delay may be caused by many reasons. Genetic and environmental factors have an increasing impact on a child’s development.
Children are at risk of acquiring developmental delay if they are born with a genetic or chromosomal abnormality such as Down’s Syndrome. This abnormal development may occur in the womb while the baby is still growing.
Developmental delay may also occur due to premature birth, genetic and heredity disorders, and exposure to infections either before or after birth. Every child with developmental delay present differently. Some children may have delays in a particular area, such as walking while the rest of their skills may continue developing on time.
