ABSTRACT

Purpose:The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of sensorimotor stimulation on the development of infant with low birth weight premature Methods:Ten infants with low birth weight premature and ten normal infants participated in this study. We carried out test TIMP(Test of Infants Motor Performance) according pre intervention, post 3 weeks, PCA 40week and normal infants. The intervention of sensorimotor stimulation applied to infants with low birth weight premature four times a week and fifteen minutes a once time. There was no intervention for normal infants The collected dada were analyzed by ANOVA using by SPSS/PC 17.0 ver. program. Results:There was significant difference among three differential test period to improved developmental value in infants with low birth weight premature. According over time, numbers of observed items presented significant difference among test period, and elicited total score and total raw score was significant value(p=.00). There was no significant value that means sensorimotor stimulation affected on development of infants with low birth weight premature. Conclusions:In conclusion, sensorimotor stimulation had affects on the development of infants with low birth weight premature.
