Addressing the Adverse Affects of Wearing Masks and Speech and Language Development

When masks are worn around infants and children during the early years of life, their ability to learn from auditory and visual cues is decreased - and speech and language development can be adversely affected. Children may not recognize faces and determine when someone is happy, sad, or angry when faces are covered.
