ABSTRACT The assessment of fine motor skills in preschoolers becomes a determining indicator of a child's health conditions. The objective of the present study was to determine the prenatal, perinatal and postnatal risk factors of children with delayed development of fine motor skills. The participants were 240 boys and girls from 2 to 5 years old from the Child Development Centers of Neiva Huila Colombia. Abbreviated Developmental Scale (EAD-3) was applied to assess fine motor skills at…

Association of risk factors with the development of gross motor skills

The need for both clinical follow-up and implementation of effective health programs for children with delay in motor development should be very relevant.

Comparison between the motor function of school-aged children with normal birth weight and children with low birth weight: a cross-sectional study.

It appears that babies who are born with LBW have a tendency of neuro-developmental impairments during their childhood, and long-term monitoring programs and early detection and intervention is necessary in order to minimize future sequelae.

Development skills of children born premature with low and very low birth weight.

The performance of babies born premature was lower than that of infants born at term regarding the gross motor, fine motor-adaptive, personal-social and language domains and the preterm groups presented different performances.

The Relationship Between Socioeconomic Status and Fine Motor Skills Among Six-Year-Old Preschool Children

Fine motor skills are important for preschool children because they spend most of their time doing activities such as writing, cutting and colouring. Children from low socioeconomic status (SES) have

Correlation between high-risk pregnancy and developmental delay in children aged 4–60 months

It was showed that some high-risk pregnancy variables had a significant correlation with developmental delay and fine motor developmental delay, and no correlation was observed between high- risk pregnancy and other developmental domains.

Prevalence of Delayed Neurodevelopment in Children from Bogotá, Colombia, South America

The prevalence of neurodevelopmental delay in Bogotá, Colombia, is within the expected range; however, NDD among apparently healthy children from nurseries and kindergartens, who had previously been undiagnosed and untreated are identified.

Risk and protective factors for child development: An observational South African birth cohort

This study provides reliable developmental data from a sub-Saharan African setting in a well-characterised sample of mother–child dyads and highlights not only the important protective effects of maternal education, birth weight, and socioeconomic status for developmental outcomes but also sex differences in developmental outcomes and key risk and protective factors for each group.

Prenatal Exposure to Tobacco and Offspring Neurocognitive Development in the Healthy Start Study.

A trajectory analysis of childhood motor development following stress in pregnancy: The QF2011 flood study

The effects of flood-related stress in pregnancy on the trajectory of children's motor development; and the moderating effects of gestational timing of the flood or sex of the child, demonstrate that stress inregnancy has enduring influences on gross, but not fine, motor skills.

Selected Risk Factors of Developmental Delay in Polish Infants: A Case-Control Study

Preventive strategies regarding DD in Polish infants should focus on the pre/peri/postnatal risk factors identified in this study, which reinforces multiple etiologies of DD.
