Continued. Autism may be a cause of global developmental delay, but most often involves delays mainly in the language/communication and social/ emotional domains of development. Autism is not always an isolated diagnosis; it may a part of a more generalized condition. The cdc we site has information on development & autism.

Yes. "global developmental delay" is a general descriptive diagnosis that encompasses many different conditions. It means there are delays in all aspects of development (motor, social/ emotional, language/ communication, cognitive) and can be mild to severe. The cause is not always apparent, especially at a young age, and often cannot be determined. [continued in next post.].

The two categorical diagnoses may be caused by a single underlying neurodevelopmental disorder, so there are standards for medical evaluation that include thorough physical and neurological exams and genetic studies.
