Development Delay


Understanding Developmental Delays

Developmental delays occur when a child does not reach developmental milestones at the expected times. These delays can affect various areas of development, including speech and language, motor skills, social and emotional skills, and cognitive abilities. Early identification and intervention are crucial to support children with developmental delays and help them achieve their full potential.


Speech and Language Delays:

  • Limited vocabulary for their age
  • Difficulty forming sentences or using correct grammar
  • Trouble understanding and following directions
  • Delayed speech development compared to peers

Social and Emotional Delays:

  • Difficulty interacting with peers
  • Challenges understanding social cues and forming relationships
  • Limited interest in playing with others
  • Trouble regulating emotions and behaviour

Cognitive Delays:

  • Difficulty with problem-solving and critical thinking
  • Trouble understanding concepts such as numbers, colours, and shapes
  • Limited attention span and difficulty focusing on tasks
