Disorders of Attention or Learning in Neurodevelopmental Disorders

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Disorders of attention or learning commonly accompany neurodevelopmental disorders. The evaluation and diagnosis of these disorders is complex and does not always follow techniques used for typically developing children. These disorders are often underappreciated and inadequately addressed because they are overshadowed by the neurodevelopmental disorder. Nevertheless, failure to recognize, diagnose, and manage these disorders may result in unsuccessful community integration.
