Neurodevelopmental Disorders

“Neurodevelopmental disorders” is the official term for a broad range of conditions that arise during the development of the nervous system, and can fundamentally reshape a person’s life trajectory.

They include conditions such as autism spectrum disorder, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), dyslexia, and cerebral palsy, among others.

On this page, we provide data and visualizations on these conditions.
