      • Genie was found kept in a cage for 13 years due to her dad
      • she was not exposed to any language or heard any verbal communication for these 13 years
      • Genie only visited her when they gave her food -boiled egg and baby food
      • despite her best efforts she did not learn full language or any cognitive development
        • Genie also was shown to have learning difficulties before she was isolated
          • Therefore it was impossible to know whether the privation caused her difficulties,
