I have been to most questions related bilingual aspects where whether and how should one introduce more than one language to child. This helps.
I am trying to find a bit broader opinion as to what is the relationship between development of the kids with their earlier exposure to multiple languages.
For specific in our case as well with my child just turned 4. We are in India. We usually speak in Gujarati at home, but since we were migrated to Hindi and English has been common with other kids, play group as well. (Much less outside people spoke to him in Gujarati). He has been a very late speaker (started almost after 2 and half years). And he is more natural with Hindi than Gujarati (our family language); though he now does speak all three languages. So does it look like a case that multiple language confusion is the real reason for late language development?
What is wanted to know is that if the situation persists, what are the likely areas of development (language, intellectual, reasoning, social or any other area) he could be lacking due to situation like this? Will he continue to lag further behind in development compared to other kids or will this not be a longer term issue?
Are there any specific advise to ensure that multiple languages doesn't limit him?
