Research implications

The current literature is predominantly from North America, thus further European or Australian studies would be of value


Conflicting data relating to academic performance would benefit from further large scale comparative studies


A multiplicity of tools were used within the included studies; further work to devise a comprehensive tool to identify neglect in school-aged children would be of value


It would be beneficial if future studies addressed neglect/emotional abuse within specific, developmentally relevant age bands


It would appear that different forms of neglect, e.g. supervisory, physical, emotional, may have different consequences for children and thus future studies should aim to separate these categories
