Psychologists have attributed this to the fact that the privation prevented her from forming an attachment or learning any language skills during the critical period of her life, up to two and a half years of age. A further case study was that of the Czech twins who were locked up by their stepmother. This case differed slightly as they were discovered at the age of seven; and as they had been kept together psychologists believe they may have been able to form some sort of attachment with one another.
