Talking to premature babies

Posted Feb 23 2014 12:00am

Facinating new study about talking to premature babies by a team at Women & Infants Hospital of Rhode Island and The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University.

Researchers found that "Premature babies benefit from being exposed to adult talk as early as possible."  Preterm infants exposed to higher word counts at 32 and 36 weeks gestation have higher cognitive and language scores at seven and 18 months corrected age.

It makes wonder why families still have to fight for early implantation.
