Speech Therapist Confirms A 364% Surge In Baby & Toddler Referrals Thanks To Face Mask Wearing

Niamh Harris

The wearing of face masks during the pandemic has caused a 364% increase in patient referrals of babies and toddlers according to Speech therapist Jaclyn Theek.

During an interview  with WPBF News, Theek said that before the pandemic, only 5 per cent of patients at her clinic were babies and toddlers, but now this number has soared to 20 per cent.

Summit News reports: Parents are describing their children’s speech problems as “COVID delayed,” with face coverings the primary cause of their speaking skills being seriously impaired.

As young as 8 months old, babies start learning how to speak by reading lips, a thankless task if parents and carers smother themselves with masks to comply with mandates.

A speech therapist says her clinic has seen a “364% increase in patient referrals of babies and toddlers”.

“It’s very important kids do see your face to learn, so they’re watching your mouth.”

What the hell have we done?!

End this cruel insanity

“It’s very important kids do see your face to learn, so they’re watching your mouth,” said Theek.The news report featured one such mother, Briana Gay, who is raising five children but having speech problems with her youngest.

“It definitely makes a difference when the world you’re growing up in you can’t interact with people and their face, that’s super important to babies,” said Gay.

According to Theek, since the pandemic, autism symptoms are also skyrocketing.

“They’re not making any word attempts and not communicating at all with their family,” she said.

As we previously highlighted, Forbes deleted an article written by an education expert who asserted that forcing schoolchildren to wear face masks was causing psychological trauma.

A study by researchers at Brown University found that mean IQ scores of young children born during the pandemic have tumbled by as much as 22 points while verbal, motor and cognitive performance have all suffered as a result of lockdown.

Michael Curzon noted that two of the primary causes for this are face masks and children being atomized as a result of being kept away from other children.

“Children born over the past year of lockdowns – at a time when the Government has prevented babies from seeing elderly relatives and other extended family members, from socialising at parks or with the children of their parent’s friends, and from studying the expressions on the faces behind the masks of locals in indoor public spaces – have significantly reduced verbal, motor and overall cognitive performance compared to children born before, according to a new U.S. study. Tests on early learning, verbal development and non-verbal development all produced results that were far behind those from the years preceding the lockdowns,” he wrote.

  1. Can’t get my head around this.
    Who wears facemasks at home while interacting with their own children?
    Its a pandemic remember. Everyone is at home locked down or working from home.
    I suspect language development problems in children who only hear Covid, Covid, Covid.
    And Briana Gay, who is raising five children needs to wear an iud, not a mask.

  2. An essential, learning language, will also help cognitive skills.

    Will this then flow on to lower IQ’s? so then proving to be more amendable in creating future ken&karens for AI (artificial intelligence) serfdom.

    It is funny in a family, I know, one of their lads, seemed very slow in beginning to talk, and seemed to be a little fella with very few words.
    How ever suddenly at a certain older age, he just surged in his speech ability to the parents great surprise and was very articulate.
    Proved he was taking it all in, and understood much more than his parents gave him credit for.
    Sort of a guy that only spoke, when it was worth speaking.
    He also has proven to be very observant & thoughtful in later life. 🙂

    It is a pain to try and make sense of what people are saying when talking with a mask on.
    I simply mumble more in reply

  3. With only one ear. The other is only for hanging glasses and masks on and half deaf.
    I have trouble understanding people, particularly asians at the best of times!
    Are we better to teach sign language rather than maori?
