The performance of 26 children (ages three through four) who were born before 32 weeks gestation was compared with the performance of 26 full-term children on a range of short-term memory and language measures. Preterm children scored more poorly across the full range of measures. One-third of the preterm children were identified as being "at risk" for persisting language difficulties. (DB)
