BACKGROUND One objective of a neonatal follow-up program is to examine and predict gross motor outcome of infants born preterm. AIMS To assess the concurrent validity of the Test of Infant Motor Performance (TIMP) and the Alberta Infant Motor Scale (AIMS), the ability to predict gross motor outcome around 15 months corrected age (CA), and to explore factors associated with the age of independent walking. METHODS 95 infants, born at a gestational age <30 weeks, were assessed around 3, 6 and… CONTINUE READING
