„Children born into low SES families are more likely to be insufficiently stimulated owing to a poor home learning environment. Such insufficient stimulation in early childhood can result in significant differences in brain size and abnormal cortex development by the age of 3, reflected in poorer cognitive and social development. The gap in cognitive performance across socioeconomic groups at 22 months has been found to correlate with schooling outcomes at the age of 26.“
