Hard to know: Each kid with delays is a unique case. Past experience has shown us that when left alone these kids are often lost, angry & act out because of their difficulty getting their needs met. We also have seen many that achieve great strides in development once we sort out how to reach them & bypass the limitations of their deficits. This takes the skill & training of specialists. Give up & they loose.
