Effects of lockdown during corona pandemic on children with neurodevelopmental disorders-A questionnaire-based survey

CONCLUSIONS: To conclude, children with NDD and their parents were significantly affected by Corona pandemicrelated lockdown. Institutional therapy discontinuation, behavioural deterioration (especially among ASD and ADHD) and parental stress were prominent challenges whereas parental motivation and reliance on homebased therapy were the positive highlights. The survey points to the role of regular parent-administered homebased therapy in children with NDD, especially to tide over similar unexpected adverse scenarios.PMID:34449147 | DOI:10.24953/turkjped.2021.04.012
