Abstract

Children born very preterm have poorer attainment in allschool subjects, and a markedly greater reliance onspecial educational support than their term-born peers.In particular, difficulties with mathematics are especiallycommon and account for the vast majority of learningdifficulties in this population. In this paper, we reviewresearch relating to the causes of mathematics learningdifficulties in typically developing children, and theimpact of very preterm birth on attainment inmathematics. Research is needed to understand thespecific nature and origins of mathematics difficulties invery preterm children to target the development ofeffective intervention strategies.
