What is a Developmental Delay?
Developmental delays stem from a wide variety of causes and manifest in an equally wide variety of symptoms and syndromes. However, as a recognized disability under the Canadian Disability Tax Credit program, all developmental delay disorders are distinguishable through the failure to meet developmental milestones.
While developmental delays may affect any part of a person’s life, they are most commonly divided into two primary categories; pervasive and specific. In short, a specific developmental delay only affects a specific part or parts of a person’s development while all other parts progress normally. On the other hand, people suffering from pervasive developmental delays have multiple parts of their development affected and can be in particular need of Canadian Disability Benefits.
Symptoms of Developmental Delays
Over the past few decades, medical and scientific research has established a set of standard developmental milestones which each person should achieve. A developmental delay can be simply described as the failure to meet one or more of these milestones. In many cases, pervasive developmental disorders include cognitive developments which are not simply delayed but additionally considered abnormal for any developmental stage. This is in contrast to specific developmental delays which most often include developmental progress which is delayed but still considered to be normal.
