Neurodevelopmental pathway

Neurodevelopmental conditions, sometimes called neurodevelopmental disorders, are impairments of the growth and development of the brain or central nervous system. Often these conditions will affect emotion, learning ability, self-control and memory. They usually become apparent as an individual develops and grows.

Examples of neurodevelopmental conditions requiring assessment include autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
