Specializes in Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics

If you are talking about true delays, rather than reaching milestones at the later end of average, then yes it is right to be concerned and to find ways to help your child. Early motor delays can lead to coordination problems for writing and being active with peers. Delays in language has been shown to lead to problems with academics, esp. reading, and social-emotional relationships.
