In brief: If I understand your

Question, you are referring to delayed developmental milestones.
This usually means that a child is developing at a slower pace than most of their peers. This is not necessarily a psychological disorder, just a concern. Sometimes children catch up and do fine. If they do not it could indicate potential emotional, physical or educational problems.
