- Myths about speech and language development.
"And so this is probably a good time to mention that bilingual influence will not delay them(...) Believe it or not, we've heard still of that sort of myth that their bilingualism is what's causing some delays. And truth be told, the data and the research says that if there is a language delay, it's going to be present no matter how many languages the child is exposed to"
"The fact is that children are capable of learning multiple languages, and even children with some developmental delays can learn different languages."
"And the other thing is also important to think about is that children develop differently. So you may have an older child and you're thinking, oh, well, Juanito was like saying a whole bunch at this age and Juanito isn't. But it doesn't necessarily mean there's a delay. All children develop differently."
