Results in the study group did not differ significantly from those in the control group. Developmental levels in children whose birth weight was under 1 501 gr) 56 cases), with low birth weight for their gestational age (23 children!, or who had neonatal hypoglycemia (22 cases) were not significantly different from the control group. However development was found to be normal in 89.7^ of children whose families had a high or intermediate socio-economic level and only in 52.6*~f of those from lower socio-economic level.
