Environment plays a key role in influencing the cognitive development of an individual. To ensure proper cognitive development in children, a motivating and encouraging environment is necessary. Lucurto (1990) observed that a child's intelligence increased when they were surrounded by an encouraging and positive environment. A child’s home environment can also affect their cognitive development.  If a child is exposed to early learning experiences, their intellectual functioning quickens and therefore, they are able to have a relatively faster cognitive development.   Read Full Lesson: Socio-Cultural Factors Influencing Cognition and Learning
