The Delayed Walker

  • James Robb

Abstract

Global developmental delay is a delay in two or more developmental domains that include cognition, speech and language, motor skills, personal skills, social skills, play, and activities of daily living. A specific developmental delay, e.g., motor, is when one area of development is affected (Silove et al. 2013).
