The lower the birth-: weight, the higher the risk of neurodevelopmental disorders. Ask your parents about the cause of & problems during mom's premature labor & delivery, your stay in the nursery, your early growth & development & results of any IQ & academic tests. Genetic factors or prenatal exposure to toxins or infections may have played a role. Neuropsychological testing will define your strengths & weaknesses.
