Research: Evaluate Neurobehavioral Intervention Effects in VLBW Infants at 1 year


Comparing Two Motor Assessment Tools to Evaluate Neurobehavioral Intervention Effects in Very Low Birth Weight Infants at 1 Year

We would like to share this research article published in the APTA Physical Therapy Journal

Very low birth weight (VLBW) infants are at increased risk for motor deficits, which may be reduced by early intervention programs. For detection of motor deficits, and to monitor intervention, different assessment tools are available. It is important to choose tools that are sensitive to evaluate the efficacy of intervention on motor outcome.
