readingserv... asks:

Does anyone know where I can find peer reviewed research articles about how nurturing can affect cognitive development?

I am looking for sources to cite in order to support the statement that a child who has been abused, neglected or traumatized may have permanent changes to his/her neurology that may result in learning disorders or IQ (MR).

What the Expert Says:

Dear Reading Service Mom,

If you are currently a student, you most likely have access to a number of wonderful academic journal databases through your university program. PsychINFO and PubMed are two of the most popular databases for the type of information you are seeking. You can start a search on your university webpage. If you find that access to these databases is limited, you can also try Google Scholar The information here is not as extensive as the above databases, but it is helpful nonetheless.

Good luck with your research! This is an important topic.
