I ran into an article about developmental delay just this past weekend and it is interesting that it is a topic that many are conducting research on.
Synopsis: Research from the George Institute for Global Health and the University of Sydney says that children who were diagnosed with “flat-head” (plagiocephaly) syndrome are more likely to develop a developmental delay. Children who a diagnosed with “flat-head” syndrome are mostly likely to be diagnosed with a delay affecting their motor, language, and cognition skills. The research was published in the Journal of Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics.
I like how, even though it does not provide the whole article, we are able to know the gist of the study. Many of the suggestions that are given to evaluate children are great tools because there are ways one is able to learn and figure out any problems the child is undergoing.
