Difference in mother-child interaction between preterm- and term-born preschoolers with and without disabilities
Acta Pediatrica, 05/02/2012
Potharst ES et al. – Five years after birth, mother–child interaction of very premature children and their mothers compared unfavourably with term children and their mothers. Mothers with sociodemographic disadvantages, raising a preterm child with severe disabilities, struggle most with giving adequate sensitive support for the autonomy development of their child. Focused specialized support for these at risk groups is warranted.
