New study shows mobile devices can hinder a baby's speech

A new study says mobile devices can hinder a baby's speech.

Toronto researchers found the more time children spent looking at screens, the slower they developed speech. 

The study looked at kids age 6 months to 24 months. 20% of the children spent about a half hour a day using screens. Every 30-minute increase in daily screen time was linked to a 49% increased risk of speech delay.
