ملخص: Results: Major neurodevelopmental abnormalities were present in 26 (15.50%) and 11 (11.46%) children, at 18 months and 3 years, respectively. The two scales: Bayley vs. Vineland at 18 months, and the two scales: Stanford-Binet vs. Vineland at 3 years were correlated significantly: ?2 (1, N= 168) = 58.07, P < 0.001; and ?2 (1, N= 96) = 49.45, P < 0.001, respectively. Nevertheless, Bayley scale and Stanford-Binet test were more likely to detect neurodevelopmental impairment among children at 18 months and 3 years, respectively. Conclusions: Infants born at the NICU at King Fahd Medical Center (KFMC), have rates of neurodevelopmental outcomes that are similar to those reported in other studies. This study confirms the need for early developmental screening to detect preterm infants with special needs. Neurodevelopmental outcomes for the cohort managed at KFMC were similar to previously published data on preterm infants elsewhere.
