MARIA-MENGEL, Margaret Rose Santa  e  LINHARES, Maria Beatriz Martins. Risk factors for infant developmental problems. Rev. Latino-Am. Enfermagem [online]. 2007, vol.15, n.spe, pp.837-842. ISSN 1518-8345.  https://doi.org/10.1590/S0104-11692007000700019.

This descriptive-correlational study aimed to detect risks for child developmental problems in the first four years of age, to identify the protective resources in the familiar environment, and to verify the best predictive variables of the development at risk. The non-clinical sample was composed by 120 children registered in a Family Health Program. The assessment instruments for global development, expressive language and familiar environment were used. The logistic regression analysis indicated that the lower the father's educational level, the higher the risk for developmental problems. Both the history of low nutritional state at six months of age and the psychosocial risk in the family environment increased the chances of having expressive language problems. It is concluded that screening tests of risk for developmental problems and the analysis of the psychosocial factors in the familiar context should be considered as preventive intervention procedure in the Family Health Programs.
