“They found that 39% of the premature babies had below normal IQs of 85 or less, compared with 13% of the babies carried to full term. The international average is only 16%.
Of the premature children, 61% had special needs or were “low achievers” in school, compared with 23% of the full term children.
And 28 of the 118 premature children were classified as having learning disabilities, compared with 11 of the full term children.”
