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.
