So are Developmental Disability and Developmental Delay the same thing, you ask?

They are not.

A Developmental Delay is when a child does not reach their developmental milestones in the expected times (primarily during the first three years of life) without a known cause or condition. Whereas a Developmental Disability is a restriction of ability caused by the condition itself.
