The severly impaired development of extreme neglect:

“In the first five years of life, 85 percent of the brain is developed,” said Armstrong, the psychologist who examined Danielle. “Those early relationships, more than anything else, help wire the brain and provide children with the experience to trust, to develop language, to communicate. They need that system to relate to the world.”

For example, babies need to experience face-to-face baby talk and hear countless repetitions of sounds in order to build the brain circuitry that will enable them to start making sounds and eventually say words. If babies’ sounds are ignored repeatedly when they begin to babble at around 6 months, their language may be delayed. In fact, neglected children often do not show the rapid growth that normally occurs in language development at 18-24 months (Scannapieco, 2008). These types of delays may extend to all types of normal development for neglected children, including their cognitive-behavioral, socio-emotional, and physical development (Scannapieco, 2008).

Disclaimer: This video serves as a starter to a variety of ideas I would like to share and explore, an ongoing learning process, which is what it can be for everyone. A human being is always learning, and such a process will only end when we die. I’ll be exploring more of these ideas and updating my views as I go. A stagnant and uncritical rigid mind is a dead one.
