What this paper adds
- Very preterm children with motor impairment have more developmental deficits than very preterm children without motor impairment
- Behaviour problems are comparable between these groups
- MND, IQ, processing speed, and hyperactivity/inattention mediate between preterm birth and motor impairment.
- Motor impairment in term-born children is not associated with developmental deficits.
