Pervasive developmental disorders (PDDs) largely overlap with the autism spectrum disorders (ASDs). PDDs manifest in childhood and mainly affect social interaction, including communication and behavior. PDDs can be caused by mutations in genes involved in brain development and function, environmental insults, or the combination of environmental factors and genetic susceptibility.
