Understanding development related symptoms and features
Symptoms may affect multiple parts of the body. Understanding which part of the body a symptom affects, can help us to better understand the potential underlying causes of a symptom, including a rare disease or genetic syndrome.
Developmental symptoms may affect different parts of an individual’s development. These include their emotional and social development, their physical development, as well as their cognitive and communication skills.
Developmental milestones help to track a child’s developmental progress and flag under delay. A delay may be isolated or accompanied by other developmental delays either in the same area and/or in other areas too.
Symptoms relating to development may be many and wide ranging. They can include a walking delay, issues with speech and language including late talking, trouble socialising with others or with showing emotion.
What is a Short Attention Span?
It is defined as a reduced attention span that may also present with related behaviors such as being easily distracted and/or impulsive.
However usually it does not meet the diagnostic criteria for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). It is a standalone symptom.
What should I do next?
In some instances a short attention span may be one of the features of a rare disease or genetic syndrome. In this case fast, targeted genetic analysis can give you a more accurate diagnosis.
