      This might not necessarily be about speed of brain development but a range of other factors. For examples the differences between a person at 7a and 4b could be due to:
      -the genes they have inherited which allow them to remember things quicker
      -their parents education, the parents of the child with a 7a maybe better able to help the child with homework etc so they progress faster
      -the school that they child goes too
      -even the diet (food and drink) can contribute to how well a child pays attention in class
      – how much sleep the child gets
