Assessing formerly extremely preterm infants at a corrected age of 21 to 24 months is associated with higher odds of detecting a significant developmental delay than assessing them at an earlier time, a study published in Pediatrics found.
“Outcomes research on extremely preterm infants frequently examines neurodevelopment in the toddler years as a primary endpoint because of the higher chances of identifying developmental challenges,” the authors wrote. “The age range at which this occurs varies from one study to the other.”
