OBJECTIVE: To analyze adorning outcomes of backward preterm breed (34–36 weeks’ gestation) with breed built-in at aboriginal appellation (37–38 weeks’ gestation) and appellation (39–41 weeks’ gestation), from adolescence through kindergarten.
METHODS: Sample included 1000 backward preterm, 1800 aboriginal term, and 3200 appellation breed absolute from the Aboriginal Adolescence Longitudinal Study, Bearing Cohort. Absolute assessments of development were performed at 9 and 24 months by application the Bayley Short Form–Research Edition T-scores and at preschool and kindergarten application the Aboriginal Adolescence Longitudinal Study, Bearing Cohort annual and mathematics θ scores. Affectionate and baby characteristics were acquired from bearing affidavit abstracts and ancestor questionnaires. Afterwards authoritative for covariates, we compared beggarly adorning outcomes amid backward preterm and full-term groups in consecutive cross-sectional analyses at anniversary timepoint application multilinear regression, with pairwise comparisons testing for accumulation differences by gestational age categories.
RESULTS: With covariates controlled at all timepoints, at 9 months backward preterm breed approved beneath optimal adorning outcomes (T = 47.31) compared with breed built-in aboriginal appellation (T = 49.12) and appellation (T = 50.09) (P < .0001). This affiliation was not credible at 24 months, (P = .66) but reemerged at preschool. Backward preterm breed approved beneath optimal array in preschool annual (P = .0006), preschool mathematics (P = .0014), and kindergarten annual (P = .0007) compared with breed built-in at appellation gestation.
CONCLUSIONS: Although backward preterm breed authenticate commensurable adorning outcomes to full-term breed (early appellation and full-term gestation) at 24 months, they authenticate beneath optimal annual outcomes at preschool and kindergarten timepoints. Ongoing adorning surveillance for backward preterm breed is acceptable into preschool and kindergarten.
Late preterm breed authenticate beneath optimal adorning outcomes compared with aboriginal appellation and full-term accouchement at kindergarten and aboriginal academy age timepoints. Baby and preschool outcomes in backward preterm breed abide underresearched.
Compared with full-term gestational groups, backward preterm breed authenticate agnate adorning outcomes at 24 months but beneath optimal outcomes at preschool and kindergarten. Admitting no adorning differences at 24 months, adorning surveillance for backward preterms is acceptable into preschool and kindergarten.
Late preterm breed (gestational age 34 weeks, 0 canicule to 36 weeks, 6 days) annual for 75% of preterm births,1 advice to >400 000 backward preterm births per year.2,3 It has been anticipation that backward preterm breed were agnate to full-term infants, with little accident for abiding morbidities,2 but accretion affirmation suggests that backward preterm breed accept academy ante of acquirements problems than their full-term counterparts,4–6 generally defective adapted apprenticeship supports at school-age.7–9
Recent studies accept advised the achievability of a dose–response affiliation amid gestational age and aboriginal academy accomplishment by comparing aboriginal academy outcomes of backward preterm breed with outcomes of accouchement built-in at aboriginal appellation (37–38 weeks) and appellation evolution (39–41 weeks).10–12 Compared with accouchement built-in at aboriginal appellation and appellation gestation, accouchement built-in in the backward preterm aeon authenticate poorer accomplishment on tests of aboriginal academy readiness, spatial abilities, and exact acumen in aboriginal childhood,10 poorer educational accomplishment at age 5,11 and poorer academy accomplishment at age 7.12 Admitting these findings, little is accepted about the arrangement of development in backward preterm breed in the aeon afore academy entry. We accept articular alone 2 studies comparing adorning outcomes of backward preterm breed with aboriginal appellation and appellation breed in infancy,13,14 with disparate results, wherein 1 study13 begin that backward preterm breed approved suboptimal development compared with aboriginal appellation and appellation breed at 8 and 18 months, and the added study14 begin no differences at 2 years.
These adverse allegation advance that added assay is bare to appraise the adorning outcomes of backward preterm breed in adolescence and to actuate back adorning risks appear amid adolescence and kindergarten to bigger acquaint aboriginal action and adorning ecology strategies.
We acclimated a nationally representative, population-based sample to appraise adorning and aboriginal annual and algebraic outcomes of backward preterm infants, compared with breed built-in aboriginal appellation (37–38 weeks) and appellation (39–41 weeks) evolution from adolescence through kindergarten. We accepted that compared with breed built-in at aboriginal appellation and appellation gestation, backward preterm breed would credible lower adorning array in aboriginal adolescence and that the adorning vulnerabilities would abide until kindergarten.
Data were fatigued from the Aboriginal Adolescence Longitudinal Study, Bearing Cohort (ECLS-B), a nationally representative, population-based longitudinal abstraction sponsored by the US Department of Education’s Civic Center for Apprenticeship Statistics (NCES) in the Institute for Apprenticeship Science. The ECLS-B is based on a nationally adumbrative anticipation sample of accouchement built-in in the United States in 2001 (inclusive). Abstracts were calm from >10 000 accouchement and their parents at 9 months, with consecutive assessments at 24-month, preschool, and kindergarten timepoints. Because the NCES had an analytic absorption in low bearing weight infants, this citizenry was oversampled. Use of data-weighting procedures adapted for asymmetric sampling and assay nonresponse, thereby acceptance abounding after-effects to accomplish nationally adumbrative estimates.15 Abstracts accumulating consisted of home visits with ancestor annual and absolute adolescent assessments and included advice on children’s cognitive, emotional, and concrete development beyond assorted settings.16 The sample for our abstraction afar accouchement with complete and chromosomal abnormalities, included accouchement built-in at 34 to 41 weeks inclusive, and acclimated abstracts from birth, 9-month, 24-month, preschool, and kindergarten timepoints. Our abstraction was advised absolved by the Institutional Review Board because the assay circuitous the use of a about accessible dataset in which the participants were deidentified, and abstracts could not be affiliated to the participants.
Infant Development. Adorning outcomes at 9 and 24 months were absolute with the Bayley Short Form–Research Edition (BSF-R) Brainy T scores. The BSF-R, which was formulated from the Bayley Scales of Baby Development, Second Edition (BSID-II),17 adjourned children’s accomplishment on tasks acute memory, botheration solving, and accent abilities and was administered at home by accomplished NCES staff. The BSF-R estimates the cardinal of items a adolescent would accept gotten actual on the abounding BSID-II through the use of annual acknowledgment access (IRT) clay and demonstrates a believability accessory of 0.80 compared with the abounding BSID-II.18 The BSF-R Brainy T array were norm-referenced by age to the ECLS-B population, adapted for prematurity, and scaled to accept a beggarly = 50, SD = 10.18
Preschool and Kindergarten Assessments. Accouchement were adjourned at preschool and kindergarten via specialized annual and algebraic assessments developed for the ECLS-B. The annual appraisal was formulated from absolute instruments including the Peabody Picture Vocabulary Test, Third Edition and Preschool Absolute Assay of Phonological and Print Processing and abstinent basal annual abilities (letter and chat recognition, compassionate letter–sound relationships, phonological awareness, afterimage chat recognition, and compassionate words in the ambience of simple sentences). The believability of the aboriginal annual appraisal is declared by the IRT believability coefficient, appear as 0.84 at preschool and 0.92 at kindergarten. Array accommodate adeptness estimates in a authentic area and were appear as commonly broadcast θ scores, which approved a ambit of −2.47 to 2.60 (mean = −0.49, SD = 0.74) at preschool and −2.11 to 3.09 (mean = 0.33, SD = 0.86) at kindergarten.19 The ECLS-B mathematics appraisal congenital questions to assay the afterward agreeable areas: cardinal sense, geometry, counting afterwards operations, and arrangement recognition. The IRT believability accessory for the aboriginal mathematics appraisal was 0.89 at preschool and 0.92 at kindergarten. The mathematics θ array approved a ambit of −2.84 to 2.38 (mean = −0.47, SD = 0.78) at preschool and −2.42 to 3.12 (mean = 0.38, SD = 0.80) at kindergarten.19
Gestational age was absolute from bearing affidavit abstracts from the ECLS-B belted use abstracts set,20 and breed were categorized as actuality backward preterm (gestational age 34–36 weeks),1 aboriginal appellation (37–38 weeks), or abounding appellation (39–41 weeks) per accepted gestational age categories.21
Maternal and baby characteristics were included as covariates. The afterward affectionate characteristics were absolute from the belted ECLS-B bearing affidavit data: affectionate age, chase or ethnicity, conjugal cachet (married or unmarried), history of prenatal smoking, continuance of feeding, and advantage (singleton, twin, assorted gestation). Additionally included were measures of affectionate apprenticeship (less than aerial school, aerial academy graduate, some college, academy graduate, added than college) and abjection (<185% federal abjection limit, ≥185% federal abjection line), which were congenital into a distinct blended admeasurement of domiciliary socioeconomic cachet created by ECLS-B at 9 months.15 Parenting characteristics from 9 months to preschool were included from coded observations of parent–child interactions. Nine-month parenting was adjourned via the 50-item ancestor calibration of the Nursing Adolescent Appraisal Teaching Scale.22 The Affectionate Responsiveness subscale (α = 0.68) reflects affectionate acuteness to adolescent cues (range 0–50).15 Parenting at 24 months and preschool was absolute from coded interactions from the Two-Bags Task, a 10-minute semistructured parent–child activity, which adjourned affectionate sensitivity, affectionate cerebral stimulation, and affectionate affecting abutment on a Likert calibration (range 1–7). Academy array adumbrated added absolute parenting behaviors.18,23
Infant characteristics and neonatal risks, additionally absolute from bearing affidavit data, included baby gender; bearing weight; fetal growth, characterized as baby for gestational age (<10%), adapted for gestational age (10%–90%), and ample for gestational age (>90%), authentic per civic standards24; 5-minute Apgar array (dichotomized as >7 vs ≤7); and canicule of assay (0–1 days, 2–7 days, 8–14 days, 15–30 days, >30 days). Enrollment in aboriginal intervention, absolute from 9-month and 24-month ancestor questionnaires, and age and ages of preschool and kindergarten appraisal were additionally included as covariates.
Maternal and adolescent characteristics were advised via anecdotic statistics to analyze outliers. Because of the attendance of outliers apropos age of adorning appraisal at the altered timepoints, the sample was belted to breed adjourned amid 8 and 11 months (9-month timepoint), 23 to 25 months (24-month timepoint), 42 to 59 months (preschool timepoint), and 60 to 72 months (kindergarten timepoint). Adolescent characteristics were compared by gestational age accumulation via 1-way assay of about-face for connected variables and logistic corruption for binomial and absolute variables.
In a alternation of cross-sectional analyses at anniversary timepoint, multilinear corruption (performed with the SURVEYREG action in SAS [SAS Institute, Inc, Cary, NC]) was acclimated to appraise the affiliation amid beggarly adorning outcomes at 9 and 24 months and beggarly annual and algebraic outcomes at preschool and kindergarten timepoints with gestational age categories (late preterm, aboriginal term, or term). Initial models advised the accession of gestational age groups and covariates on outcomes at 9 months, 24 months, preschool, and kindergarten timepoints. The covariates with a P amount <.05 (maternal age, affectionate chase or ethnicity, socioeconomic cachet at 9 months, parenting, baby gender, bearing weight, and cancellation of aboriginal action services) were included in the final archetypal for adapted analyses. Analyses at preschool and kindergarten additionally included age at appraisal and ages of school. Post hoc tests advised pairwise differences amid gestational age categories at a acceptation akin of P < .05.
All analyses were conducted in SAS 9.4.25 Because of the circuitous sample design, sample weights and the Jackknife adjustment were acclimated to annual for stratification, clustering, and assemblage nonresponse. After-effects are appear for the abounding analyses, and in accordance with the NCES requirements for ECLS-B abstracts usage, appear numbers were angled to the aing 50.
The unweighted sample included a absolute of 6000 infants: 1000 backward preterm (gestational age 34–36 weeks), 1800 aboriginal appellation (37–38 weeks), and 3200 appellation (39–41 weeks) infants. The beggarly age for mothers was 27.5 years (SD = 5.0), best (68.9%) were married, best (79.2%) had a aerial academy apprenticeship or greater, and about bisected of families (53%) were at or aloft the abjection threshold, authentic as assets >185% of the federal abjection line. Affectionate characteristics are credible in Table 1. Baby characteristics did not alter by gestational age group, with the barring of lower bearing weight, lower 5-minute Apgar scores, added canicule of hospitalization, and academy allotment of aboriginal action casework at 9 months for breed built-in backward preterm. Adolescent characteristics are credible in Table 2.
Child Characteristics by Gestational Age Groups
Adjusted assay showed that breed built-in backward preterm approved lower cerebral array compared with added gestational age groups as abstinent by the BSF-R Brainy T array at 9 months (F = 13.97; P < .0001) (Table 3). Post hoc pairwise comparisons appear that backward preterm breed approved lower cerebral array compared with aboriginal appellation (P = .0006) and appellation breed (P < .0001). This affiliation was additionally credible in breed with academy gestational age: Aboriginal appellation breed approved lower cerebral outcomes compared with appellation breed (P = .02) (Fig 1A).

Superscripts a, b, and c that alter from one accession denote cogent differences (P < .05) amid backward preterm, aboriginal term, and appellation breed at anniversary timepoint.
Contrary to 9-month adorning outcomes, afterwards we controlled for covariates, there were no differences in 24-month cerebral outcomes amid backward preterm breed and full-term breed (F = 0.41; P = .66) (Table 3, Fig 1B).
After we controlled for covariates, breed built-in backward preterm approved lower annual array at preschool compared with added gestational age groups as abstinent by the ECLS-B Preschool Annual Appraisal θ array (F = 9.44; P = .0002) (Table 3). Post hoc pairwise comparisons appear that backward preterm breed approved lower annual array compared with full-term breed (P = .0006) but not aboriginal appellation breed (P = .14) (Fig 1C). There were additionally differences in preschool algebraic outcomes amid gestational age groups (F = 7.07; P = .0014) (Table 3), with backward preterm breed demonstrating lower algebraic array compared with appellation (P = .0014) but not aboriginal appellation (P = .07) breed (Fig 1D).
Similar to preschool annual outcomes, afterwards we controlled for covariates, accouchement built-in backward preterm approved lower annual array at kindergarten compared with added gestational age groups (F = 6.33; P = .003) (Table 3). Post hoc pairwise comparisons appear that backward preterm breed approved lower kindergarten annual array compared with aboriginal appellation (P = .02) and full-term (P = .0007) breed (Fig 1E). There were no differences in kindergarten algebraic outcomes amid the 3 gestational age groups (F= 0.22; P = .81) (Table 3, Fig 1F).
This is the aboriginal longitudinal abstraction to analyze adorning outcomes of backward preterm breed with term-born gestational groups (early appellation and term) from adolescence to kindergarten in a nationally representative, population-based sample from the United States. We begin that the arrangement of suboptimal development of backward preterm breed appears to alter from 9 months through kindergarten. Agnate to added longitudinal studies in adolescence comparing outcomes of backward preterm with aboriginal appellation and appellation infants,13 we begin that backward preterm breed authenticate lower adorning outcomes at 9 months compared with term-born breed (early appellation and appellation groups). This affiliation was not credible at 24 months, which is constant with after-effects from some studies14,26 but differs from added studies.27,28 At preschool and kindergarten timepoints, agnate to antecedent studies of backward preterm breed at preschool and aboriginal academy age,10,11 we begin that backward preterm breed authenticate beneath optimal aboriginal annual abilities in preschool and kindergarten and beneath optimal mathematics abilities at preschool compared with full-term groups.
Regarding our 24-month findings, although antecedent assay with the ECLS-B has approved lower adorning outcomes of backward preterm breed compared with full-term breed at 24 months,27,28 afterwards acclimation for covariates and adjusting for prematurity, we begin no adorning differences amid backward preterm and full-term groups. These disparate after-effects may be explained by antecedent letters not acclimation for prematurity27 or may be attributed to differences in how connected measures of development were acquired from absolute adorning measures at 24 months in antecedent research.28 In our analyses, we acclimated the BSF-R Brainy T scores, accessible in the ECLS-B dataset, to analyze adorning aftereffect of backward preterm with full-term groups at 24 months. In accordance with the ECLS-B codebook, the BSF-R T array were based on archival age, normed to the ECLS-B population, adapted for prematurity, and advised to accredit alone comparisons with the agnate age advertence population.16 In added assay focused on backward preterm outcomes at 24 months,28 development was adjourned with a admeasurement complete by the authors, labeled as a acquired brainy adorning basis and acquired psyctor adorning index, which may psychometrically alter from the connected measures included in the ECLS-B dataset. Furthermore, admitting the BSF-R T array were adapted for prematurity, it is not bright whether the acquired brainy adorning basis and acquired psyctor adorning basis adapted for prematurity, which may additionally annual for our adverse allegation at 24 months, admitting our use of abstracts from the aforementioned dataset. Added studies accept additionally begin no adorning differences amid backward preterm and full-term breed at 2 years of age,14,26 adopting the achievability that the attenuate adorning delays of backward preterm breed in adolescence may become beneath credible in the toddler period, which may accept implications for adorning surveillance in primary care.
Despite no adorning differences empiric at 24 months, as in antecedent research,29 we begin that backward preterm breed authenticate beneath optimal adorning outcomes at preschool. This suggests that the preschool-age bloom administration appointment may be an abnormally important appointment for pediatric providers to adviser for arising adorning delays in accouchement who were built-in backward preterm and to facilitate adapted administration for adorning issues.30,31 Accouchement who were built-in backward preterm who authenticate delays on pediatric screening should be referred for a absolute adorning appraisal to accommodate a analytic appraisal for adorning adjournment and to facilitate referrals for adapted interventions. In addition, these accouchement should be referred for a school-based psychoeducational appraisal to actuate the charge for school-based supports and services.32,33
There are some abeyant explanations for the arrangement of development empiric in backward preterm breed from 9 months to kindergarten. Compared with breed built-in abounding term, the backward preterm academician manifests neurodevelopmental immaturity, characterized by lower academician aggregate and beneath differentiated patterns of myelination and neural connectivity.34–37 These structural differences in the accuracy of accouchement built-in backward preterm, including lower gray amount aggregate present in adolescence and academy age,38,39 may be associated with the suboptimal development in aboriginal annual and algebraic abilities we identified, agnate to that which has been empiric in accouchement built-in abounding term.40,41
The abridgement of adorning differences in accouchement built-in backward preterm empiric at 24 months and the reemergence of suboptimal development at preschool may additionally be accompanying to limitations in the instruments acclimated at the 24-month timepoint and to attenuate differences in academician development that become credible with advancing age. The brainy calibration of the BSID-II (after which the BSF-R was formulated)16 was advised to appraise acoustic perceptual abilities, aboriginal exact communication, and aboriginal cardinal concepts42 but may in actuality be a fractional admeasurement of gross motor abilities and sensorimotor functioning43 and may not be an authentic appraisal of cerebral abilities in infancy. In addition, the neurocognitive deficits associated with backward preterm birth, including deficits in aboriginal annual and algebraic skills,44,45 may not be anxiously detected in the toddler period.
Our abstraction had several strengths and limitations. The abstraction includes a nationally adumbrative sample, the after-effects of which are generalizable to the population, and assessments of adolescent development from adolescence through kindergarten. In addition, in adverse to added studies that accept acclimated ancestor address questionnaires to appraise development,13,14 the ECLS-B administered absolute adolescent assessments to admeasurement development, appropriately aspersing biases that can be associated with ancestor address measures.46 One of the limitations of the abstraction relates to altered assessments of adolescent development at adolescence and the preschool and kindergarten timepoints. Because the BSF-R adjourned altered adorning constructs in adolescence compared with the measures of aboriginal annual and algebraic acclimated at the preschool and kindergarten timepoints, it was accounted that the measures were not equivalent, and a longitudinal access to the abstracts was not possible. As a result, we adjourned adorning outcomes in a alternation of cross-sectional analyses rather than afterward the aforementioned adolescent from adolescence through kindergarten longitudinally. In addition, the ECLS-B did not accommodate a admeasurement of IQ at preschool and kindergarten, so the measures of aboriginal acquirements are bound to the aboriginal annual and algebraic domains and cannot be ambiguous to an all-embracing admeasurement of bookish aptitude. Furthermore, there is no advice in the ECLS-B about illnesses and hospitalizations in the neonatal period, or the specific capacity apropos the medical morbidities associated with backward preterm birth47,48 that may be associated with suboptimal adorning outcomes.
We begin baby but allusive beggarly differences in adorning outcomes amid backward preterm breed and full-term groups, which, back extrapolated to a citizenry level, can accept potentially cogent accessible bloom implications for abiding outcomes.12,49 Adorning differences in backward preterm breed emerged amid 24 months and preschool, suggesting that backward preterm breed may account from afterpiece adorning monitoring, targeted assessments, and interventions afore academy entry.
