ADHD is one of the most common neurodevelopmental disorders of childhood. It is usually first diagnosed in childhood and often lasts into adulthood.

Autism, or autism spectrum disorder (ASD), refers to a broad range of conditions characterized by challenges with social skills, repetitive behaviors, speech and nonverbal communication.

Dyslexia is a learning disorder that affects your ability to read, spell, write, and speak. Kids who have it are often smart and hardworking, but they have trouble connecting the letters they see to the sounds those letters make.

According to the National Institute of Mental Health, 32% of children between ages 13 and 18 have had an anxiety disorder. Occasional anxiety is a normal part of life, but for a person with an anxiety disorder the feeling does not go away and can get worse over time.
