VIANA, Tatiana Plutarco; ANDRADE, Izabella Santos Nogueira de  e  LOPES, Ana Nádia Macedo. Cognitive and language development in preterm infantsCognitive and language development in preterm infants. Audiol., Commun. Res. [online]. 2014, vol.19, n.1, pp.1-6. ISSN 2317-6431.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S2317-64312014000100002.

Purpose

: To correlate aspects of cognitive and language development in preterm infants of 24 and 42 months of chronological age.

Methods

: A quantitative, analytical, and cross-sectional study was conducted between February and December 2012. The sample comprised ten preterm infants with a chronological age ranging between 24 and 42 months. These children were subjected to the Bayley Scales of Infant Development – III and evaluated according to cognitive, receptive, and expressive language subscales.

Results

: A statistical significance was observed when correlating chronological and corrected age with the age of cognitive and language development. In the correlation of chronological age with cognitive and language abilities, a statistical significance was observed regarding the ability to grasp and handle objects, and in the construction and object permanence capacity. In the correlation of developmental age with cognition and language abilities, a statistical significance was observed in all cognitive abilities. A significant correlation was not observed between ages of expressive language development and receptive language ability.

Conclusion

: A correlation between chronological and corrected ages with the ages of cognitive and language development was confirmed. Receptive and expressive language abilities showed a distinct development; however, they were dependent on the cognition.
