LAP Lambert Academic Publishing This book has been written to provide reference information regarding the Influence that environmental stressors have on academic performance of school-age children worldwide. These stressors specifically relate to environmental, Psychological, Experiential, Socio-economic and Behavioural factors. In addition, these stressors are also closely inter-linked with cognitive processes, cognitive functions, neuro-developmental dysfunctions, xenobiotics (toxins), communicable and non-communicable (life style)diseases. Thus, an apparent, quiet conspiracy exists among the above factors, processes, functions, toxins and diseases to undermine the academic potential of the school-age child.
