The aim of the present study is to describe the performance of very low birth-weight preterm toddlers regarding expressive language and cognitive development during sensorimotor and beginning of pre-operational periods, as well as to compare the performance presented by these children to that presented by their full-term peers, according to Genetic Epistemology theoretical principles.
The hypothesis of this study is that very-low birth weight preterms would present a poorer performance, concerning expressive language and cognition development,than their full-term peers.
