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

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.
- Psychomotor development assessment. [ Time Frame: Year 2 ]Assessed by the Bayley Scale Third Edition BSID-III.
- 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.
- The quality of parenting. [ Time Frame: Month 9; Year 2 ]Assessed by a grid (established by the team of child psychiatry neonatology).
- 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.
