AbstractBackground: Preterm newborns are more prone to exhibit neurodevelopmental delays than neonates born at full term gestational age. The aim of this study was to examine the gross motor, fine motor, personal-social, and language development of severely preterm and moderate-to-late preterm infants at one year of age.
Methods: A randomised controlled study with concealed allocation and blinded outcome assessment was done in a tertiary care neonatal centre in Bangalore, India, from May 2019 to November 2020. The early intervention group included 50 preterm infants born between 28 and 37 weeks gestational age, while the control group included 50 preterm newborns. Premature children with known congenital disorders that affect neurodevelopment were excluded from the study.
