The Science of Neglect: The Persistent Absence of Responsive Care Disrupts the Developing Brain. Working Paper 12
National Scientific Council on the Developing Child
Young children who experience severe deprivation or neglect can experience a range of negative consequences. Neglect can delay brain development, impair executive function skills, and disrupt the body's stress response. This working paper from the National Scientific Council on the Developing Child explains why neglect is so harmful in the earliest years of life, and why effective interventions can improve long-term outcomes in learning, health, and the parenting of the next generation.
