Developmental Delay

A child's development is delayed if he or she is lagging behind other children of the same age in one or more of the following areas: speech and language, motor skills, intelligence, attention span, learning in school, behavior and emotional control, and social skills. Many such children catch up, but not all, and in some cases further evaluation is needed so the best possible treatments can be offered.
