About Journal of Childhood & Developmental Disorders

Journal of Childhood & Developmental Disorders is an open access journal and publishes manuscripts after thorough peer review process. This journal deals with childhood development related disorders such as Early Developmental Disabilities, Neurodevelopmental Disorders in children, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Genetic Disorders, Dyslexia, Brain impairment activity, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Learning and Communication Disabilities, Cerebral Palsy, Language impairment, Vision impairment and Mental disabilities, etc. Moreover it accepts the articles which are not submitted on child developmental stages such as social, behavioral and cognitive stages.

Open access is a platform in which all articles are published online such as this journal, where everyone can access and view the articles with free of cost globally.

The main focus of this journal is to enhance the knowledge of the readers, researchers and pediatricians on the current and upcoming development happening in medical domain of childhood & developmental disorders by providing the quality information, which can be used to mitigate the developmental disorders related to childhood.

Neurodevelopmental Disorders

A neurodevelopmental disorder is described as genetic or acquired biological disability in the functioning of the brain that is responsible for the dysfunction in the child’s behaviour. It also affects the memory and ability to learn such as mental retardation, dyslexia, cerebral palsy and autism etc. It addresses the complexities of the of the central nervous system development in children. There are four major categories of these disorders which include: cognitive dysfunction, behavioural problems, motor dysfunction, and seizures. The neurodevelopmental behavioural disorder includes physical as well as functional abnormalities. The migration of neurons may be affected by exposure to x-ray radiation, alcohol or methylmercury.

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is not a disease or the result of damage to the brain but it a dysfunction that means the brain doesn't function in the way it should. The exact cause is not clear, but ADHD tends to run in families. ADHD symptoms include trouble paying attention, trouble sitting still for even a short time and acting before thinking etc.

Autism

Autism is a complex developmental disability; signs typically appear during early childhood and affect a person’s ability to communicate, and interact with others. Some of the behaviors associated with autism include delayed learning of language; difficulty making eye contact or holding a conversation; difficulty with executive functioning, which relates to reasoning and planning; narrow, intense interests; poor motor skills and sensory sensitivities.

Central Auditory Processing Disorder (CAPD)

Central auditory processing disorder is neurological defect casing hearing problem that affects children mostly. There is communication gap because of incomplete receiving, remembering and understanding of information. More precisely, the problem arises when children are not able to recognize the slight difference in sounds even when the sounds are loud and clear.

Cerebral Palsy

Cerebral palsy is a condition of motor disability in childhood that affects a person’s ability to move and maintain balance and posture. It is caused by abnormal brain development or damage to the developing brain which affect the ability to control his or her muscles. The specific cause is unknown. It is one of the most common congenital disorders of childhood.

Children suffering from cerebral palsy have common symptoms of seizures, speech and communication problems and intellectual disabilities.

Conduct Disorder

Conduct Disorder refers to serious behavioural and emotional disorder that can occur in children and teenagers. Children and adolescent with conduct disorder have great difficulty in socializing and display disruptive and violent behaviour. The behaviour becomes uncommon when it is long-lasting and violates the rights of others. Some major factors involve child abuse or neglect, school failure, traumatic life experiences and brain damage. Many children show mood disorders, anxiety, learning problems along with conduct disorder symptoms.

Down Syndrome

Down syndrome is a genetic disorder occurs when part of chromosome 21 gets attached to another chromosome during the formation of reproductive cells. This results in trisomy of 21 meaning each cell in body has 3 copies of chromosome 21. This additional genetic material alters the course of development.

Children suffering from Down syndrome show certain features such as flat face, a short neck, slating eyes and small mouth. They also have small degree of intellectual disability. Varied level of changes is seen in the development of brain and body develops.

Encopresis

Encopresis is a condition of fecal incontinence. It often occurs in children above age of 4 where they have already learned to use toilet. It occurs when a child resists having bowel movements, causing impacted stool to accumulate in the colon and rectum. Some of the primary symptoms involve leakage of stool or liquid stool infrequently, constipation with hard, dry stool, abdominal pain, lack of appetite and repeated urinary tract infections.

Enuresis

Enuresis is commonly known as bed-wetting at night. It is a common elimination disorder. Some children experience both night time wetting and day time wetting. This involuntary or non-intentional pass of urine may be because of small bladder, persistent urinary tract infection or stress. Mostly children below the age of 10 suffer from such conditions.

Expressive Language Disorder

Expressive Language disorder is a condition where child suffers from expressive language development. Child has difficulty in conveying information in speech, writing, gestures or sign language. They display lower than normal ability in vocabulary. Children with expressive language disorder are diagnosed with brain injury or some cases damage to central nervous system. They display problems in organizing their thoughts and problems in understanding what is said to them.

Fragile X Syndrome

Fragile X Syndrome is a genetic disorder which causes arrange of developmental problem including intellectual disabilities and cognitive impairment. It also includes learning challenges and difficulties with various physical characteristics. Both genders are affected by this syndrome but more frequently males show this disease with greater severity. Mutations in the FMR1 gene cause fragile X syndrome. This gene is responsible for the making of protein called called fragile X mental retardation 1 protein, or FMRP.

Affected individuals show delayed development of speech and language. General features include a range from moderate learning disabilities to more severe intellectual disabilities. Behavioural characteristics and physical features include ADD, ADHD, austistic behaviour with large ears, long face, soft skin and large testicles.

Specific Language Impairment (SLI)

Specific language impairment (SLI) is a language disorder that delays the mastery of language skills in children who have no hearing loss or other developmental delays. SLI is also called developmental language disorder, language delay, or developmental dysphasia.

Stuttering

Stuttering is characterized by disturbances in the fluency of the speech. It begins in childhood and usually people suffer from that throughout life. At starting the person is not aware of this problem. Stuttering is often accompanied by motor movements such as eye blinks, tics, tremors of the lips or face, jerking of the head, breathing movements, or fist clenching. It disrupts the proper communication by a person and mostly detected by listeners. Sometimes the features are not easily recognized by the listeners therefore diagnosing stuttering often requires the skill of certified speech-language pathologist (SLP).

Tourette’s Disorder

Tourette’s Disorder is neurological disorder affecting the brain and nervous system. It is characterized by repetitive, stereotyped, involuntary movements and vocalizations called tics. For example a person may repeatedly blink eyes, shrug his shoulders or jerk his head. Signs of Tourette’s syndrome show up between the age group of 2 to 12. Sometimes this disorder may be associated with OCD or ADHD.

Alzheimer’s Disease

Alzheimer's disease is a radical disease that declines memory and other important mental functions. It is the most common cause of dementia — a group of brain disorders that result in the loss of intellectual and social skills. These changes are severe enough to interfere with day-to-day life.
