Middle-School-Age Outcomes in Children with Very Low Birthweight.
Taylor, H. Gerry; Klein, Nancy; Minich, Nori M.; Hack, Maureen
Child Development, v71 n6 p1495-1511 Nov-Dec 2000
Compared outcomes of middle-school-age children born at very low (less than 750-g) or low birthweights (750 to 1,499-g) and full-term. Found that the very-low-weight group fared less well at school age than the low weight and term groups on cognitive functioning, achievement, behavior, and academic performance. Those without neurosensory disorders and global cognitive impairment performed more poorly on motor skills, mathematics, and other tests. (Author/KB)
