New PRISM Paper on Inattention in Very Preterm Children

Posted on: 23 April 2014

The PRISM study team have published exciting new findings in the journal Archives of Disease in Childhood.

This study suggests that very preterm children are at greater risk for symptoms of inattention than their term born peers, even when children with special educational needs are removed from the analysis. Therefore, very preterm children with heightened inattention may not be detected in school. We suggest that raising teachers knowledge of inattention may help very preterm children in school.
