Depending on the quality of the third month of life, the dynamics of changes in motor development

Edward Taylor

The study's objective was to demonstrate that children at risk for cerebral palsy need to have both quantitative and qualitative motor development by the third month of life in order to reach milestones and that this development may serve as an early warning indicator for the condition. The study's participants included 93 kids (69 born at term). The average body weight of the newborns, who arrived at 38- week, week 4, was 102 g to 814 g. After the third month of life, all children were assessed (both quantitatively and qualitatively), followed by evaluations at 4.5 years, 7 years, and 12 years of age. Children with probable CP were monitored until the 18th month, at which point the diagnosis was determined. At the 4.5th month of life, if a child's development was correct, it would creep and assume a crawl position. At the final assessment (the 12th month of life), the child would begin to walk. If at the age of 3 months, a child achieved a quadrangle of support and symmetrical support. If a child's dynamics of development were off and they failed to reach a quadrangle of support and symmetrical support, either their growth would be delayed (until the 12th month of life) or CP would manifest. With a high probability, accurate qualitative evaluation in the third month of birth ensures accurate quantitative development in the 4.5th, 7.5th, and 12th months of life. If the child had a very poor qualitative assessment in the third month of life, CP would likely be diagnosed at 18 months.
