Project Goal:

As an ancillary study to the BMGF-funded trial on preconception maternal nutrition (The Women First Trial), UCD did a comparison of the infant outcomes, comparing assessment using the traditional evaluation (Bayley Scales of Infant Development) vs. the Inter-NDA. The Inter-NDA is a new tool to assess neurodevelopment, which requires less time and resources to administer than the BSID and thus may be advantageous to use in low-middle income countries. RTI provided support for the data collection and analyses of the outcomes of infants who are tested for this study.
