How Lockdowns Have Affected Speech and Language Skills

If you have a preschool-aged child, this past year has probably disrupted normal learning and development. Research from the UK shows that lockdowns due to the pandemic have had an impact on young children's language skills. Consultant developmental paediatrician Dr Rajini Sarvananthan and speech-language therapist Dr Etain Vong join us to discuss what red flags parents should look out for, and what they can do as the pandemic stretches on.
