The purpose of Project EF: Executive Function in Infants and Toddlers Born Low Birth Weight (LBW) and Preterm is to examine whether traditional assessment methods that have components of EF in their structure can discern early indicators of executive functioning in children born LBW and preterm and in children born full-term. We expect that the groups will show differential performance on the early developmental measures. We expect that all children’s early cognitive and self-regulation skills will predict later skills in EF.
