CASTILLO VALDES, Leydelys et al. Results of implementing a pre-language stimulation program in children with perinatal risk factors. Rev Ciencias Médicas [online]. 2013, vol.17, n.6, pp.74-86. ISSN 1561-3194.

Introduction: for many, learning one's mother tongue constitutes the human being's greatest intellectual feat. It is an accumulative process, where the main features become richer. Objective: to design a stimulation program for prevention and timely treatment of language disorders in children with perinatal risk factors, so that it allows a proper development of basic elements of oral communication starting from the results of the pre-language stage evaluation. It was developed at the Abel Santamaria Cuadrado Ob-Gyn Hospital´s Neurodevelopment Service, in the period 2010-2011. Material and method: an observational, descriptive, longitudinal, prospective study was carried out of logophoniatric medical records data processed into the statistical system InfStat 1.0. The target group consisted of 183 children and the sample comprised 142 children that conformed to the inclusion criteria. Results: the sample presented 68 prenatal risk factors, 234 perinatal, and 150 neonatal. The association of risk factors predominated in a same child and gravity resulting from such association corresponded with the presence of moderate and mild risks for the onset of after-effects during the neurodevelopment. 94% of the children had language development in accordance with their age. Conclusions: the study allowed effectiveness of the actions carried out by specialists and the family after the implementation of the stimulation program.
