Psychomotor Therapy for Very Premature Infants (VPI)

The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government. Read our disclaimer for details. Identifier: NCT03093337

Brief Summary:
Our current reflexion is that sensory dys-stimulations, including vestibule-proprioceptive disorders and unbalanced between brain and brainstem maturation of the neonatal period involve an early deviant development for immature infants that will be cascaded through the brain scaffolding and later development. The primary purpose is to determine whether the Early Psychomotor Therapy Intervention Program improves development and behavior in very preterm infants (VPI) at 24-month corrected age (CA).

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Premature Infant Other: Early post hospital discharge psychomotor therapy Not Applicable

Detailed Description:

VPI < 30 week of amenorrhea were randomized, in a simple blind controlled trial. The psychomotor development was evaluated according to the Bayley Scales of Infant Development-III (BSID-III) at 2 years CA. An intermediate point was provided at 9 months CA. Pediatric standardized assessments and psychologist semi-directive interviews were conducted. Parents also completed a self-administering questionnaire relating to the post-traumatic stress. The intervention consisted on 20 therapy sessions between 2 and 9 months CA, in order to support infants' development, and parent-infant interactions and adjustment.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Psychomotor therapy
Early post hospital discharge psychomotor therapy.
Other: Early post hospital discharge psychomotor therapy
The intervention consisted on 20 psychomotor therapy sessions between 2 and 9 months, in order to support infants' development, and parent-infant interactions and adjustment. The therapy was based on body and emotional positive feelings and experiences, leading to improve sensory motor and perceptive integration, interactive and exploratory behaviors, physiological and tonic-emotional self-regulation, motor organization and early coordination. The intervention was a partnership with the parents, leading to decode the baby needs and expectations, for the parents to experiment more positive feelings, to become more confident in their own skills and more sensitive, and in synchrony with their baby. Intervention was supported by a detailed assessment scale implemented in the regional network related to the follow-up for vulnerable babies.

No Intervention: Control
No specific support.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Psychomotor development assessment. [ Time Frame: Year 2 ]
    Assessed by the Bayley Scale Third Edition BSID-III.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. The acceptability of the protocol by the parents for the intervention group. [ Time Frame: Month 9 ]
    Assessed by a self-questionnaire given by the neonatologist at the end of the treatment.

  2. The quality of parenting. [ Time Frame: Month 9; Year 2 ]
    Assessed by a grid (established by the team of child psychiatry neonatology).

  3. The clinical evolution of the child assessed by a standardized neurological examination. [ Time Frame: Months 3, 6, 9, 12, 18, 24 ]
    Assessed during the consultations planned in the network (neonatologists of the CHU), based on a standardized neurological examination.
