Non - Heretical Variables Adversely Affecting Neurodevelopmental Disorders
Abstract: Based on the psychometric classification system DSM (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders) of the American Psychiatric Association, the neurodevelopmental disorders that some students and/or children/individuals inherently carry are not only due to hereditary origins, but also to prenatal, perinatal and postnatal factors and causes. The purpose of the specific pain is to highlight prenatal (injuries and/or illnesses of the child and mother during pregnancy), perinatal (premature birth, anoxia, low and/or minimal birth weight of the infant, infections, hypoglycemia etc.) and postnatal (neonatal convulsions, intracranial hemorrhage, brain injury, acquired encephalopathy) complications that cause dysfunction of the brain and central nervous system, that is, effects that result in the appearance and formation of neurodevelopmental disorders. The critical - interpretative review of domestic and international literature is used as the scientific method and tool for recording the findings of the work. Consequently, it appears and demonstrates that the creation and formation of neurodevelopmental disorders in these individuals is sometimes due to organic/genetic/hereditary causes and, sometimes, to environmental deficits and problems that arise both prenatally, perinatally and postnatally.
