Physical discipline and cognitive deprivation associated with specific types of developmental delay


A study in the Journal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry (JAACAP) reports that in a diverse, cross-national sample of youth, physical discipline and cognitive deprivation had distinct associations with specific domains of developmental delay. The findings are based on the Multiple Indicator Cluster Surveys, which is an ongoing, international household survey initiative coordinated and assisted by the United Nations agency, UNICEF.
