Could someone tell me how to improve this question please?

Privation is the lack of emotional care, especially in the first few years of life which results in no attachment being formed. The case study of Genie is a study we can look at to see the effects of privation. Genie was locked in a room until she was 13 years old, she was never fed solid food and was tied to a potty. Genie never fully recovered or gained any social skills. Another case study we can look at is the Czech twins. They were locked in a room for 7 years, they were adopted into a loving home and became socially and intellectually stable.

However, case studies are based on retrospective evidence and therefore may not be representative. The czech twins seemed to recover easier than Genie, there are many reasons why this might be. They were put into a stable, loving home whereas Genie was not. Also, they were younger when they were found and it maybe easier to recover at the age they were at. We don't know if Genie was born with learning difficulties, learning difficulties would hinder her ability to recover. It is said that those who do not have an attachment within the critical period are unable, it is clear to see that Genie did not have any attachment, however the Czech twins were together and although they did not have an attachment with a mother figure they may have had an attachment because they had each other.

each case study you have mentioned needs to be written in a lot more detail. ideally each case study needs to have its own paragraph and then its own paragraph of evaluation. also have you learnt another study into privation i.e. the Hodges and Tizard study? if so use that and do another description paragraph and another evaluation paragraph
