Action Medical Research funds preterm birth resource for teachers
A new e-learning resource has been developed to improve educational support for children born preterm. Developed by Professor Samantha Johnson and colleagues it is aimed at education professionals to help them understand the needs of children born preterm.
It can be used to support neonatal follow-up for preterm born children, providing parents with information about potential long-term difficulties and teachers with strategies that can be used to support the learning of preterm born children at school.
The resource is funded by Action Medical Research and was created with Loughborough University, University of Nottingham, University College London and Ulster University.
