We all know that some people used to think that children should be seen and not heard. But did that have a positive effect on a child's development?

The Atlanta Speech School believes language is the key to unlocking every child’s potential and every person a child comes into contact with can help in their development through proper communication.

Their video, 'Every Opportunity', shows a young boy during one day at school and, although the situations are exagerrated in the first part of the video, the message is that "small changes in adult behavior, both inside and outside of the classroom, can enhance a child’s approach and her ability to learn.”
