This is a long video but its interesting because it about a girl who was locked away from society and how she can barely speak or walk. it just shows how environment and interaction really has to do with children development. eventually she does learn how to speak a little bit and they predict if she was a “normal” child she could go through the stages of growing.


One thought on “Genie

  1. This movie was very interesting to see how she developed. I had read a story about a family that was secluded into the wilderness. I was also curious how they cognitively developed. I am very curious to see how this child being completely cut off from all human connection would compare too the family I read about who lived in the Russian tundra for forty years
