More than a decade has passed since the Newcastle research team published their data showing that children born 'too soon' or 'too small' in 1960-62 had behavioural, temperamental and intellectual impairments five to seven years later (Neligan et al. 1976). Those who were born 'too small' in the Newcastle Survey of Child Development were at the greater disadvantage.
