Popis Prematurely born infants (born before 37 weeks of completed gestation) have a high risk of cognitive and motor impairment or delays. It is a fact that premature birth can lead to poor visual and auditory perception, working memory, executive functions, motor skills and motor learning. Premature birth can also increase the risk of language impairments. Although we have a lot of data on neurodevelopmental outcomes of premature babies, little is known about motor and cognitive functioning over time, especially during the first three years of their lives. Therefore, the aim of our study is the early identification of cognitive and motor development trajectories in premature children (from birth to 36 months). To examine this issue, we are going to asses 200 preterm born children with the Bayley Scales of Infant Development, Second Edition (BSID II). Data collection will be done in The University Hospital Brno. In order to capture the time development, we will perform a total of 7 measurements – 1 month (T1), 6 months (T2), 12 months (T3), 18 months (T4), 24 months (T5), 30 months (T6) and 36 months (T7). The data will be analysed by applying growth curve modeling. Understanding the direction of cognitive and motor development during early childhood could help us anticipate further developments and adapt necessary interventions.
