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.

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.
