SAN FRANCISCO Heren Nike Air Max 97 OG GS Rood Kopen , May 5 (Xinhua) -- Young children who spend time on handheld devices such as smartphones, tablets and electronic games are likely to experience speech delays, a new study has said.
In the study presented at the annual Pediatric Academic Societies Meeting in San Francisco on Thursday, researchers from the University of Toronto and the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto found that the more time children between the ages of six months and two years spent on handheld screens, the higher risk of speech delays they will experience.
Collecting the amounts of time of nearly 900 children spent using screens in minutes per day, scientists used an infant-toddler checklist and a validated screening tool to assess the children's language development.
Then they found that every 30 minutes of daily screen time will lead to a 49-percent increased risk of delayed speech.
"Handheld devices are everywhere these days Heren Schoenen Nike Air Max 97 Marine Goud Kopen ," Dr. Catherine Briken said. Infants should be able to communicate in simply sentences at the age of two to three, but those who spent the most time on handheld screens were found to struggle with communication skills.
It was the first study to show an association between handheld screen time and increased risk of expressive language delay, Briken said, adding that much more research was needed to help parents and clinicians confront the problem.

Best-selling author Yan Geling, recently made a splash on Chinese TV with Theater, a 34-episode series written by her.
Since June 10, when it was first aired on Beijing Satellite TV, the series has become a hit among middle-aged Chinese owing to both its setting-a remote town in 1980s China-and the storyline that centers on a struggling theater star Heren Nike Air Max 97 OG GS Schoenen Zilver Wit Rood Kopen , who after being framed by a younger rival, decides to walk out of the situation and follow her dreams in Beijing.
The 57-year-old Chinese-American writer has published nearly 50 novels and novellas in English and Chinese, some of which have been translated in many other languages, such as Dutch, French, Spanish and Japanese.
Yan says the TV series was inspired from the real-life story of her mother Heren Nike Air Max 97 Ultra Zwart Wit Schoenen Kopen , Jia Lin, a veteran theater actress. "It is my way of paying tribute to elderly Chinese artists," she says, adding that theater reflects the "diversity of humanity".
"During my childhood, I always lingered at the theater where my mother worked. I had witnessed the entire process of making a drama, from rehearsals to performers' wearing their makeup. It made me fascinated Air Max 97 Ultra Zwart Heren Nike Kopen ," Yan tells China Daily.
The Shanghai-born author, who emigrated to the United States in the late '80s, says her memories of the mainland are still vivid.

Describing herself as a fan of dramas, Yan says they made "pretty high-level" art, and adds that she is considering writing a drama screenplay as well.
Theater features veteran actress Chen Shu and actor Sun Chun, who are both professional artists with National Theater of China.
"It's a TV drama not pitched at the market and audience ratings. It could be a successful work beyond the mundane definition of commercial succ.
