    Early intervention in childhood language impairments is not always best.

    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Early intervention in childhood language impairments is not always best because addressing language impairments early on can greatly improve a child's ability to communicate and interact with others. By identifying and addressing language difficulties early, children can receive appropriate support and therapy to develop their language skills. Without early intervention, language impairments can persist and have long-term effects on a child's academic and social development. Therefore, early intervention is generally considered to be the most effective approach for addressing language impairments in childhood.
