More damage done by our elected officials and fixers. The damage was a self inflicted error by Team Biden.

Hopefully the future will forgive us

“I’m particularly worried about younger children’s development which, if left unaddressed, could potentially cause problems for primary schools down the line,” said chief inspector Amanda Spielman.
We previously highlighted another study out of Germany which found that the reading ability of children has plummeted compared to pre-COVID times thanks to lockdown policies that led to the closure of schools.

Speech therapist Jaclyn Theek said that mask wearing during the pandemic has caused a 364% increase in patient referrals of babies and toddlers.

“They’re not making any word attempts and not communicating at all with their family,” she said, adding that symptoms of autism are also skyrocketing.

Not to mention tons of masks piling up in landfills.

Short term? Maybe as toddlers do learn how to form words by watching peoples faces.
Most mothers were not wearing masks around their toddlers and even if they were it would be a short term issue.
But at least their mothers and fathers were alive.

I wouldn’t consider adult antimaskers models of speech and socialization skills.

Serious question, what is the point of posting the nonsense you post?

It certainly didn't help with teaching phonics, for sure. I've had to reteach sounds because they weren't hearing them or saying them correctly due to the masks.

That being said, we have been seeing an increase in speech and language issues in kindergarten for years now prior to Covid.

We should have seen this coming. Apparently for years surgeons have been forgetting how to speak from wearing masks while operating. But I thought it was vaccines that cause autism, not masks. On the other hand, if you can't believe Zero Hedge, who can you believe?

Total BS. I have 6 year old and 4 year old grandsons who are not the least bit fussed by wearing a mask. The 4 year old wants 3 or 4 masks a day....the 6 year old reminds Mom and Dad to put on theirs! It all has to do with how parents and teachers message it. Having said that I'm glad it's over for them at school.

Short-term issues can affect children's development.

And any effect positive of masks can't be shown at all.

His team wasn't though. And it was absolutely Democrats that made Draconian mask rules. We can tell by the institutions that are still doing them stupidly.
The OP blamed Biden. Trump was president. That's just a fact that can't be argued

Name one person that's alive today that would be if there wasn't masks being worn.
Look at it from the opposite perspective. Maybe Herman Cain - who had other medical issues, tho his cancer was in remission - would be alive today had he worn a mask.

Why don't you trust scientists and medical personnel?
