Christchurch, Oct 19 NZPA - Children born prematurely and therefore susceptible to learning difficulties may get earlier help thanks to research at Canterbury University.
Fresh clues about why some premature children face increased learning and educational problems have been identified in a study led by Dr Lianne Woodward, principal researcher in the Canterbury Child Development Research Group.
Findings, soon to be published in the prestigious science journal Brain, also reveal for the first time that working memory difficulties resulting from premature birth can be detected in children as young as two.
