Delayed speech development in children

The delay in speech development, abbreviated as RRDS, represents a later mastery of oral speech skills by children under 3 years of age compared to the average age norm. The delay in speech development can be qualitative or quantitative, it is expressed in the insufficient development of the vocabulary and in the lack of expressive conversation, and may also be the absence of phrasal speech in a child of 2 years. If the baby does not speak coherently and more or less understandably by the age of 3, his speech development is delayed.

Whooping cough

Whooping cough is an acute infectious disease, accompanied by inflammation in the upper respiratory tract and paroxysmal spasmodic cough.

Unvaccinated children under 5 years of age are most often infected, and whooping cough is especially dangerous for children in their first year of life. At an older age, this infection is much easier.

Whooping cough is caused by a specific bacterium called Bordetella pertussis. The microbe is transmitted by airborne droplets (by coughing, sneezing, talking) in close contact with a sick person. The disease is very contagious. However, a contact (for example, through toys) transmission of infection is impossible, since the bacterium quickly dies in the external environment.

Immunity after the disease is developed very persistent and usually lasts for life. Repeated diseases can occur in old age. However, as a rule, doctors take him for a cold – the disease is so easy. Continue reading
