Resiliency in the Aftermath of Deprivation: A Second Look at the Development of Romanian Orphanage Children.
Morison, Sara J.; Ellwood, Ann-Louise
Merrill-Palmer Quarterly, v46 n4 p717-37 Oct 2000
Examined cognitive development in children adopted after at least eight months in a Romanian orphanage, and evaluated the influence of a stable adoptive family and home environment on their development. Found that subjects scored lower than comparison group of nonadopted, never institutionalized children on all cognitive measures, and on most measures with a comparison group of early adopted children.
