Infants born during the pandemic are facing challenges in their speech development, as new studies indicate a significant decrease in their ability to communicate and potential difficulties with reading in the future, Your Content has learned.

According to multiple studies, the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has hindered parents’ ability to engage their babies and toddlers in conversations that promote language development. As a result, these children are talking less than their counterparts from previous years.

The concerning findings from these studies demonstrate that after just one year into the pandemic, infants’ cognitive performance has dropped to the lowest levels seen in the past decade. This alarming trend puts pandemic-born babies at a higher risk for academic struggles later in life.

Experts are now warning that nearly one-third of elementary students may require intensive support to become proficient readers, underscoring the long-lasting impact of the pandemic on children’s educational development.
