In brief: Many causes of delay

There can be many causes for developmental delays.
Examples of this would be prematurity, genetic conditions, exposure to drugs, alcohol, lead, or maternal infections. Lack of stimulation can also lead to delays, such as infants who are left in their cribs or infant seats for hours at a time with no interaction.
