Improper Speech and Development

Young children can be affected by social, economic, and environmental factors. When it comes to their speech and development, lack of stimulation can delay their motor skills. Inadequate awareness of communication can be a sign of reduced hearing. And frequent moving, changes in environment, and exposure to different languages can lead to high anxiety and cause improper speech development.

Parent Interactions

Even when playing with your child there can be positives and negatives. For instance, playing and teaching through reading can be positive when you're hands-on. But ignoring or failing to interact with your child is a negative.
