Purpose : This study aimed to evaluate the usefulness of Korean Infant Development Screening Test in predicting delayed development in premature infants. Methods : A total of 74 children with histories of prematurity, who visited the pediatric neurology clinic of Korean University Ansan Hospital from August, 2002 to July, 2004, were examined, using the Korean Infant Development Screening Test. They were divided into two groups; a normal group and a patient(neurologically compromised) group. Results : At 7 months of conceptional age, the normal and patient groups differed significantly in the fine motor, cognitive-adaptive sections. At 12 months of conceptional age both group, differed significantly in the gross motor, fine motor, personal-social, language and cognitive-adaptive sections. At 18-24 months, the group, differed significantly in gross motor, fine motor, personal-social, language and cognitive-adaptive sections. Conclusion : The Korean Developmental Screening Test was useful in predicting developmental delay in premature infants.
