  • I have a sister who couldn’t speak clearly until she was age 4. I’m worried that my child may inherit this. Is this a possibility?

  • Remember that a child’s intelligence, as well as his language and speech development is affected by his genetic make-up. But do know that there are many other causes for speech delay, which a developmental pediatrician can tell you about. It is both nature and nurture that will determine how a child’s speech develops, so do your part in making sure that you foster an environment of learning and communication at home.
