WHAT CAUSES DEVELOPMENTAL DELAYS IN CHILDREN?

Developmental delays in children can have many different causes, such as genetic causes (like Down syndrome), or complications of pregnancy and birth (like prematurity or infections). Often, however, the specific cause is unknown. Some of the causes can be easily reversed if diagnosed early enough, such as hearing loss from chronic ear infections or lead poisoning. So, if you think your child’s development may be delayed, you should take them to your child’s pediatrician. Developmental delays in children are the issues that kids don’t outgrow or catch up from, though they can make progress. https://www.federalwaypediatrics.com/contents/services/additional-services/developmental-delays-in-children
