Level: Introductory (Assumes little or no familiarity with the literature and professional practice within the areas covered.)

The traditional adverse outcomes of the preterm infant are widely published (Alyward, 2005). However, less is known regarding the presence of minor morbidities in premature children, even though a higher prevalence has been reported in the literature (Edwards et al., 2011). This seminar will provide an introduction to prematurity and co-occurring problems and diagnoses. The short- and long-term complications associated with prematurity will be discussed. Preliminary data from studies conducted with preschool (n = 96) and school-aged children (n = 36) born in Ontario will be presented. Results in the following domains will also be presented: receptive and expressive language, narration, attention, memory and executive functioning.
