It is now online the Article “Adaptations of the Walking Corsi Test (WalCT) for 2- and 3-year- old preterm and term-born toddlers: A preliminary study. by Nuria Martín-Pozuelo, Verónica Robles-García, Laura Piccardi, Alejandro Quintela del Rio, Javier Cudeiro, Isabel De las Cuevas-Terán, published in Frontiers in Pediatrics.

In the present study are preliminary reported data on two adapted versions of the Walking Corsi Test, with simplified instructions and increasing motivation to be suitable for  2- and 3-year-old toddlers born at term and preterm. Here, two groups of 20 toddlers  born at term and 27 toddlers preterm took part in to the study. The results showed better performance of the term groups with increasing age for both versions. When rising motivation, 2-year- old preterm toddlers improve their performance but differences between both groups were still significant. The preterm group showed lower performance probably due to lower levels of attention.
