developmentally delayed - study
Consultant developmental paediatrician at Starship Hospital and lead researcher Dr Jin Russell said the results show a strong link between poverty and child development.
She said she knew from the work she did with children on the ground that poverty had an impact on their development.
But, to find out that about one in four Kiwi children weren't reaching their full developmental potential "really took me by surprise", she said of the data.
