  • Additional Information
    • Clinical Answer:
      Data from randomized controlled trials including around 2000 preterm infants shows that, compared with standard infant follow‐up, early intervention programs improve cognitive and motor outcomes particularly at infant age, with some benefits persisting into preschool age. These programs do not seem to be more effective than standard follow‐up at improving motor function or cognitive function at school age or at reducing the rate of cerebral palsy. Components of early intervention programs varied greatly but included infant stimulation, physiotherapy, occupational therapy and the enhancement of the parent‐infant relationship. The clinically and statistically significant heterogeneity among studies means that it is unclear which programs have the most benefit.
