Preemies' developmental delays may go unnoticed until preschool

Babies born between 34 and 36 weeks of gestation had similar developmental outcomes at age 24 months, compared with those born between 37 and 41 weeks of gestation, but had less optimal math and reading outcomes in preschool and lower reading scores in kindergarten than those born early-term or full-term. The findings in Pediatrics were based on data involving 6,000 infants in the Early Childhood Longitudinal Study Birth Cohort.   United Press International (7/25)
