CHILDREN ALL DEVELOP DIFFERENTLY
Some children do genuinely have developmental disorders that require some action; but for most children, irregular development is some areas of their life should not be considered abnormal. Every child is different to the rest; with their own strengths and weaknesses. Differences are to be embraced.
There are a number of specific developmental disorders though which are relatively common Specific learning disorders usually involve developmental delays which are not a result of a lack of education or attributable to other mental health disorders.
There is some controversy associated with classifying these specific disorders as mental health disorders since there is often no other psychopathology associated with them. The individual may have a problem with a particular area, e.g. reading, but is otherwise normal. Often, individuals have more than one learning deficit but no other psychopathology.
Specific developmental disorders include the DSM categories of learning disorders, motor skills disorder, and communications disorders. In the ICD these are called disorders of scholastic skills, motor function, and speech and language, respectively.
