Abuse Affects Cognitive Learning

Posted by Sandra On December - 6 - 2010

Children who are abused or neglected show impairments in cognitive development in adolescence, a large, population-based study found. When tested for literacy skills at age 14, children who had been reported to authorities for either abuse or neglect had a mean difference of ?4.4 points out of 100 (standard deviation 15, 95% CI ?6.3 to ?2.5) compared with children who had not been maltreated, according to Ryan Mills, MPH, of the University of Queensland in Australia, and colleagues. In addition, on testing for abstract reasoning ability, abused or neglected children had a mean difference of ?4.8 points (95% CI ?6.7 to ?2.9), the researchers reported online in Pediatrics.

Child abuse has increased 134% since 1980 and is now considered a worldwide epidemic. The high jump in child abuse deaths and the shocking increase in statistics highlights the frightening lack of public knowledge.
