OBJECTIVES. We sought to examine the impact of a randomized, controlled trial of home visiting among infants with failure to thrive on growth, academic/cognitive performance, and home/classroom behavior at age 8. METHODS. Infants with failure to thrive (N = 130) or adequate growth (N = 119) were recruited from pediatric primary care clinics serving low-income, urban communities. Eligibility criteria included age <25 months, gestational age >36 weeks, birth weight >2500 g, and no significant… Expand
Psychosocial and educational outcomes of weight faltering in infancy in ALSPAC
TLDR
Weight faltering in early infancy was associated with poorer educational outcomes in later childhood, but these associations were explained by confounding. Expand
Characteristics of Failure to Thrive in a Referral Population
TLDR
Recommendations for evaluating and treating children with mild FTT in primary care settings and a standardized definition of FTT that warrants more intensive treatment would help ensure that children were referred and treated appropriately. Expand
Community-based interventions to optimize early childhood development in low resource settings
TLDR
Play and reading were effective interventions for early childhood interventions in low- and middle-income countries and Kangaroo Mother Care is effective for low birth weight babies in resource poor settings, but further research is needed in community settings. Expand
Clinical Characteristics of Failure to Thrive in Infant and Toddler: Organic vs. Nonorganic
TLDR
Weight decline is more severe in OFTT patients and in younger patients at the first visit, and Infants with FTT can attain normal weight gain growth by treating organic diseases and supplying proper nutrition in OFT, and by correcting abnormal dietary behavior of caregiver in NOFTT. Expand
How Did They Grow: An Intervention to Reduce Stunted Growth in Low-Income Mexican-American Children.
TLDR
Results suggest that a nursing intervention delivered in collaboration with WIC can make a significant improvement in growth of low-income children with growth stunting, particularly for children of women who were older and less acculturated. Expand

TLDR
The most important part of the outpatient evaluation is obtaining an accurate account of a child's eating habits and caloric intake, and appropriate nutritional counseling and anticipatory guidance at each well child visit may help prevent some cause of FTT. Expand
Failure to thrive in infant and toddlers: a practical flowchart-based approach in a hospital setting
TLDR
The flow chart presented was accurate for diagnosing children with failure to thrive in a hospital setting and distinct organic and non- organic forms and was cost-effective to avoid unnecessary blood test or consultations in most non-organic diagnoses. Expand
Failure to thrive: an update.
TLDR
A multidisciplinary approach to treatment, including home nursing visits and nutritional counseling, has been shown to improve weight gain, parent-child relationships, and cognitive development. Expand
Failure to Thrive
TLDR
The treatment of this entity requires a multidisciplinary approach, correcting the macro and micronutrient deficiency in the child as well as education of parents regarding age-appropriate feeding recommendation for children. Expand
Resting energy expenditure at 3 months of age following neonatal surgery for congenital heart disease.
TLDR
At 3 months of age, there was no difference in REE between postsurgical infants with CHD and healthy infants, and decreased %FAT contributed to growth failure in the infants withCHD. Expand

A randomized clinical trial of home intervention for children with failure to thrive.
TLDR
Findings support a cautious optimism regarding home intervention during the first year of life provided by trained lay home visitors and can reduce the developmental delays often experienced by low income, urban infants with NOFTT. Expand

TLDR
The intervention did not change the incidence of FTT or the 3-year outcomes in this low-birth-weight, preterm cohort and marked effects on 3- year IQ were noted. Expand
Risk status and home intervention among children with failure-to-thrive: follow-up at age 4.
TLDR
Results suggest that among low-SES families of children with FTT, home intervention may be most useful among mothers with low negative affectivity, and highlight the importance of conducting follow-up assessments in the evaluation of home intervention services. Expand

TLDR
The findings in the HLBW INT group provide support for preschool education to make long-term changes in a diverse group of children who are at developmental risk and raise questions about the biological and educational factors that foster or inhibit sustained effects of early educational intervention.

TLDR
In failure to thrive, health visitor intervention, with limited specialist support, can significantly improve growth compared with conventional management. Expand

Hospitalized cases of nonorganic failure to thrive: the scope of the problem and short-term lay health visitor intervention.
TLDR
The characteristics of thriving and failure to thrive children and their mothers are described and the need for differentiation of the severity of the disturbance in the mother-child relationship is emphasized and for more intensive intervention than was available in this study. Expand

TLDR
The study failed to show that specialist health visitor intervention conferred additional benefits for the child, however, the specialist health visitors did provide a more coordinated approach, with significant savings in terms of health service use. Expand
Cognitive development of children in poverty with failure to thrive: a prospective study through age 6.
TLDR
Using hierarchical linear modeling, child-centered home environment and small family size were related to better cognitive performance, and the low scores of both groups point to the need for programs promoting a child- centered home environment. Expand
