Improving the lives of children with neurodevelopmental disorders

Many childhood conditions can impact on a child's brain development and significantly affect their cognition, learning, behaviour and emotions as they grow. These conditions might include autism, reading and intellectual difficulties, social anxiety disorder, hearing impairment, cerebral palsy and brain injury. The Centre for Atypical Neurodevelopment (CAN) leads research and clinical interventions to address the needs of children and their families as they transition into adulthood.
