What is Childhood Disintegrative Disorder?
Childhood Disintegrative Disorder is one of five disorders which fall under the category of Pervasive Developmental Disorders (PPD). Other disorders in this category include Autism, Asperger’s, Rett’s Syndrome, and Pervasive Developmental Disorder-NOS (Not otherwise specified).
Childhood Disintegrative Disorder is very rare, occurring in only 2 per 100,000 children. One of the identifying characteristics is that the child with this disorder develops typically until symptoms begin, appearing suddenly over a period of days, weeks, or sometimes months. Symptoms may appear by age 2, but commonly the child is between the ages of 3-4 when regression becomes apparent.
What are the Symptoms of CDD?
There is a loss of previously acquired language and social skills that result in persistent delays in these areas. Additionally, other social and emotional milestones show persistent regression. A child who was once consolable by a parent’s touch may withdraw from human contact, or the child who interacted with appropriate eye contact from infancy may suddenly avoid eye contact with others.
