    The Synactive Theory of Infant Development provides a framework for understanding the behavior of premature infants. The infant's behaviors are grouped according to five "subsystems of functioning." The five subsystems are as follows: MOTOR - We look at the infant's motor tone, movement, activity and posture.

    to a local early intervention pro-gram. Early intervention services can be essential in managing all the physical and emotional challenges of caring for a premature baby, spurring development so that the baby can bridge the gap between chronological and adjusted age. “Adjusted age,” a term typically used for the first two years, is the.   Abstract. Background: As neonatal care improves in low-resource settings, more preterm or low birth weight (LBW) babies are surviving, but little is known about their long-term outcomes. Globally, preterm and/or LBW babies are at increased risk of mortality, malnutrition, and developmental delay. Objectives: We aim to describe the differences in development in .

      A pediatric occupational therapist provides early intervention for the infant or babies. In the case of infants, developmental delays can be missed initially. But the baby with premature birth, low birth weight, or babies born with some physical impairment or chromosomal genetic disorder, may need to intervene as early as possible. OBJECTIVE: Using a statewide population-based data source, we describe current neonatal follow-up referral practices for high-risk infants with developmental delays throughout California. METHODS: From a cohort analysis of quality improvement data from 66 neonatal follow-up programs in the California Children’s Services and California Perinatal Quality Care Collaborative High-Risk Infant.

Background: Infants born preterm are at increased risk of developing cognitive and motor impairment compared with infants born at term. Early developmental interventions have been provided in the clinical setting with the aim of improving overall functional outcomes for these infants.

Long-term benefits of these programmes remain unclear. present guideline is focused on interventions that could be provided during pregnancy, labour and during the newborn period with the aim of improving outcomes for preterm infants.

Recommendations on interventions to prevent and reduce the risk of preterm birth or modify risk in at-risk pregnant women are outside the scope of this guideline. The Infant Health and Development Program (IHDP) is a landmark preventive intervention effort for preterm children which can be characterized by its comprehen- siveness, high intensity, and multisite features.

Traditionally, non-medical, developmental intervention with premature infants has been a controversial topic in neonatal intensive care units (NICU).

However, a small but growing band of researchers have been pushing for the acceptance of alternative interventions, such as kangaroo care and massage therapy, that do not resort to surgical or other medical practices.

The purpose of their project was to demonstrate that a preventive program would be more effective than the traditional remedial program.

Developmental interventions had positive, significant effects on mental development and on the quality of caregiver-infant interactions.

Changes in mental development were not independent of changes in the GLOS. J Dev Behav Pediatr –78, Index terms: high-risk neonates, premature infants, developmental intervention. Developmental care creates an environment that minimizes the stress an infant experiences in the NICU, while providing a developmentally appropriate experience for both the baby and the family.

By providing an individualized approach to the care of premature infants, developmental care practices promote optimal growth and maximize neurological. The Early Intervention Program for Infants and Toddlers With Disabilities, or Part C of the Individuals With Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), is a federal grant program that assists states in operating a comprehensive statewide program of services and supports for children birth through 2 years old with developmental delays, including (at state option) children who are “at risk” of.

Currently in the United States, 12% of all infants are born preterm, or before 37 weeks of gestation. 1 Compared with full-term infants (≥37 weeks), these infants are more likely to be hospitalized, to have poorer health, and to have cognitive and developmental delays in the first year of life.

Preterm infants from disadvantaged backgrounds may be especially vulnerable to .The percentage of infants delivered at moderately low birthweight (1, grams) rose to % infrom % in 1 These trends are important, keeping in mind that low birth weight premature infants are at higher risk than full-term normal birth weight infants for medical and developmental complications that, in turn, can affect.Preterm birth and low birth weight are known high-risk factors related to infants’ neurodevelopmental abnormalities.

2 Neurodevelopment monitoring of high-risk infants under the age of 3 years old is crucial for early identification of developmental abnormalities; therefore, early interventions which aim to improve motor and/or cognitive.
