Language developmental retardation is one of the most common developmental problems at 2 years of age, with an incidence of 18% to 28%, of which about 50% can catch up with normal language development at 3 to 4 years of age. If preschool children have a severe language delay, manifested as persistent difficulties in understanding and/or using spoken language, written language or other symbolic systems, and have hindered their age-appropriate learning, communication and social relationships, they can develop For language barriers. Language problems persist in primary school enrollment and face many difficulties in school age, leading to greater risk of cognitive, literacy, behavioral and spiritual problems.

A study at home and abroad found that children with language development retardation/disorders have more behavioral abnormalities in addition to language and learning difficulties, such as difficulty in dialogue, social avoidance, and lack of attention. Concentration, hyperactivity, increased aggressive behavior, and emotional fluctuations. The Children's Medical Center's developmental behavioral pediatrics survey of 80 children with language retardation/disorder children's Conners parents found that these children's conduct problems, learning problems, hyperactivity and hyperactivity index were significantly higher than the normal development of the control group of children. Recent studies have found that behavioral problems and the development of language barriers have a common cause or risk process. The relationship between executive function deficits and children's language barriers is currently hot research. The executive function consists of three main components: working memory, cognitive flexibility, and suppression control. In 2016, a cohort study of French early childhood language development and future hyperactivity/attention deficits showed that there was a significant correlation between the lack of comprehension of language skills at the age of 3 and the occurrence of 5.5-year-old hyperactivity. Children and ADHD children have a certain degree of backward working memory ability, indicating that early language backwardness is a risk factor for future hyperactive behavior, and working memory may be one of the foundations of the two diseases. Preschool children's cognitive control, attention control and motion control have significant direct and indirect effects on their language ability. It can be seen that working memory and inhibition control not only affect the development of language, but also affect children's behavioral development, and children with working memory defects manifest as difficulties in continuous attention and more difficult learning difficulties.

Therefore, when children have behavioral problems, they should not only pay attention to the behavior itself, but also the reasons behind the behavior. Simple behavioral interventions often have poor effects on children with abnormal language development. For preschool and school-age children, learning behaviors, impulsiveness, hyperactivity and other behavioral abnormalities caused by language problems cannot be ignored. If a child has a history of abnormal language development or is currently lagging behind in language proficiency, he should also be alert to behavioral problems while interlingling in language. As language skills improve, behavioral problems also decrease.
