Social Emotional Behaviour Disorder (SEBD) is an inability to build, understand, and maintain interpersonal relationships with peers and school staff. Children with SEBD may lack the ability to understand social cues, display a pervasive mood of unhappiness, have a tendency to distort minor problems into something more severe, or display consistent inappropriate behaviour and feelings in normal conditions.


“Chronic anxiety is a state more undesirable than any other, and we will try almost any manoeuvre to eliminate it. As a German saying puts it: 'Better an end with terror than a terror without end.” 

― Robert E. NealeThe Art of Dying


What is a Global Developmental Delay (GDD)?


Global developmental delay refers to a cognitive/intellectual developmental disability typically characterized by a lower than average intelligence coupled with considerable limits in at least two other areas/milestones of development. It is mainly diagnosed in those under the age of five years.

What are Pervasive Development Disorders - PDD?


The Following disorders are included under the banner of PDD:

  • Autism

  • Asperger's syndrome (now considered autism spectrum disorder)

  • Childhood disintegrative disorder:  This is rare condition. Children begin typical development in all areas, physical, emotional and intellectual, then, at some point, typically between 2 and 10 years of age, the child begins to lose many of the social and language skills developed. A child with disintegrative disorder may also lose control of other bodily functions, including bowel and bladder.

  • Rett's syndrome: Children with Rett’s symptoms associated with a PDD also suffer problems with physical development. They typically suffer the loss of some/many motor or movement skills and develop poor coordination. It is a condition mainly of girls.

  • Pervasive development disorder not otherwise specified (PDDNOS)


Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) is a complex and not easily explained disability. The term - Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder - refers to the range of effects that can occur in children, youth or adults who have been prenatally exposed to alcohol (FASD Support Network of Saskatchewan Inc.).


ADHD exists when a child has pervasive and persistent difficulties focusing and keeping their body still and interferes with every aspect of their life: home, academic, and social. Early childhood ADHD may be associated with depression, mood or conduct disorders and substance abuse (CHADD).


Children with ADHD may have symptoms of inattention (formerly ADD), hyperactivity/impulsivity, or both.
