Beschreibung

High Risk Children (HRC) are those with an increased risk of abnormal development due to any factor affecting neurological growth. Those factors have been the focus of most studies in this area. However, little is known about their long-term consequences over the course of child development. Objectives: the goal was to study the cognitive, emotional and academic outcomes of 7-year-old children diagnosed as HRC at birth. Method: We compared 14 HRC and 20 healthy children using the WISC-IV, BASC and Brunet-Lezine tests. Results: HRC showed cognitive, emotional and academic deficits compared with healthy children. However, Brunet-Lezine scores obtained over the course of development (6, 12, 18 and 24 months) were not predictive of the children's' current psychological status. Conclusions: long-term follow-up with HRC should be maintained until 7 years of age, at which point an appropriate treatment should be implemented.
