Children born very preterm have increased risk for impaired functional outcome. Children born small-for-gestational-age (SGA) also have a higher risk for poor functional outcome.
In children born very preterm and SGA, compared to very preterm appropriate-for-gestational-age (AGA) controls, the following domains were more affected:
- Performance IQ;
- Total and fine motor skills;
- Attention and visual perception.
