Neurodevelopment can be disrupted in two ways:
Lack of sensory experiences
Abnormal activation of neuron patterns, can be caused by traumatic experiences
Neglect was associated with the poorest academic performance.
Piaget's Theory of Cognitive Development?
Disrupted attachment process
Increased susceptibility to stress
Increased dependency of excessive isolation
Inabilities to properly regulate emotions
Coping mechanism where the person mentally and emotionally removes themselves from the situation.
