B. Signs and Symptoms of Global Developmental Delay

The signs and symptoms of global developmental delay (GDD) can vary depending on the individual and the severity of their delay. In general, children with GDD may have difficulty with cognitive, motor, and/or communication skills, and they may not be meeting the expected milestones for their age in multiple areas of development.

Some common signs and symptoms of GDD include:

1. Delays in cognitive development, such as difficulty with problem-solving, memory, and attention
2. Delays in motor development, such as difficulty with fine and gross motor skills
3. Delays in communication development, such as difficulty with speech and language
4. Delays in social-emotional development, such as difficulty with social interactions and emotional
5. Poor feeding and/or sleeping habits

It's important to note that these are just some of the many signs and symptoms of GDD, and the challenges and symptoms of each individual will vary. If you are concerned about your child's development, it's important to speak with a healthcare provider or educational specialist to determine the best course of action.
