Neurodevelopment is a broad term used to describe the formation of the neurological connections and pathways in the brain. These pathways control performance and functions such as memory, attention, social skills, focus and more. Influences on these neurological pathways can impact the way a person’s brain develops. Examples of conditions resulting from impacts to neurodevelopment include but aren’t limited to: Autism, ADHD, cerebral palsy, and vision or hearing impairments.
