Project description

Extremely preterm born children are often confronted with several developmental problems, such as autism spectrum disorders. The aim of this project is to obtain knowledge about this association. Firstly, we will conduct a follow-up study of the EPIBEL children at the age of 12-13. Secondly, we will start a new cohort of extremely preterm born children.
