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.
Children with a delay in speech development must necessarily be consulted by a pediatric neurologist and pediatric otolaryngologist, as well as a speech therapist and psychologist. However, the latter is not necessary and is done only by necessity. In some cases, a medical examination and diagnosis are necessary. Further, corrective work is carried out aimed at eliminating the delay in speech development. This must necessarily include psychological and pedagogical, and if necessary, medical assistance.

Diphtheria is an acute, life-threatening, infectious disease. Children aged 3–7 years are most susceptible to it; in recent years, the incidence of adolescents and adults has increased.
Diphtheria is an acute, life-threatening, infectious disease. It proceeds in the form of acute inflammation of the upper respiratory tract, mainly the pharynx (approximately 90% of cases), the nose, the skin at the sites of damage, eyes or genitals.
The main threat, however, is not inflammation, but poisoning with a toxin, which is produced by the bacterium, the causative agent of the disease, while the cardiovascular and nervous systems are mainly affected.
The causative agent of diphtheria and infection
The causative agent of diphtheria is Corynebacterium diphteriae – gram-positive bacteria in the form of sticks with characteristic bulbous thickenings at the ends, which are placed in pairs in swabs, at an angle in the form of a Roman numeral V with respect to each other. Diphtheria bacilli secrete diphtheria toxin, the enzyme neuraminidase and other biochemically active compounds in the process of life. Continue reading
One of the most persistent misconceptions is that a deficiency of vitamins threatens us only in late winter and early spring. In autumn, there are enough vitamins in the body – after all, in the summer, we “vitamins” with berries, fruits, and fresh vegetables. And this stock will be enough for us until next spring.
In fact, this is another myth. It is quite easy to earn hypovitaminosis in the autumn, and in autumn we also need vitamins as in winter, and in spring, and in summer. In fact, the body needs them constantly – at any time of the year.
Why are vitamins needed in the fall?
The first reason – to stock up on vitamins for the long term does not work. So, water-soluble vitamins – and this is C, the whole group B – remain in the body only a couple of weeks. And then those that are not digested simply leave the body with urine. Continue reading
