Improving educational outcomes for children born preterm: a new approach
Deborah Bamber, Camilla Gilmore, Samantha Johnson
Children born preterm are at higher risk of special educational needs than their term-born peers, and have poorer attainment at school. As intervention efforts to date have had little success in improving long-term outcomes, a new approach to intervention is needed. The Premature Infants’ Skills in Mathematics (PRISM) team has developed a novel e-learning resource to improve educational support for children born preterm. The resource is freely available for use by parents, healthcare and education professionals worldwide and has been shown to improve teachers’ knowledge of preterm birth and their confidence in supporting children in the classroom. Here we describe the development and evaluation of the e-learning resource.
