The effect of poverty on developmental screening scores among infants

Abstract: CONTEXT AND OBJECTIVE: Child development is negatively influenced by multiple risk factors associated with poverty, thus indicating the importance of identifying the most vulnerable groups within populations that are apparently homogeneous regarding their state of socioeconomic deprivation. This study aimed to identify different levels of poverty in a population of low socioeconomic condition and to ascertain their influence on infants' neuropsychomotor development. DESIGN AND SETTING:Cross-sectional study con… Show more

“…With the increase in family income, parents become more able to pay attention and invest in their children, following the guidance of health and education professionals (29) . On the other hand, people with unfavorable socioeconomic conditions, expressed through maternal/paternal unemployment and unavailability of consumer goods, have children with delayed development (30) . One must consider the different contexts to which these children are exposed to standardize the assessment of functionality, taking into account environmental factors, because the SES is the most important environmental reason that may contribute to the rehabilitation process (21) .…”

“…One must consider the different contexts to which these children are exposed to standardize the assessment of functionality, taking into account environmental factors, because the SES is the most important environmental reason that may contribute to the rehabilitation process (21) . Because of the multifactorial and dynamic nature of child development and poverty, the attempt to compare data from study results that explain the association between these two elements is complex (30) , and the methodology used to evaluate both the SES and child development is not uniform among the various studies (1,5,6,8,(30)(31)(32) .…”

“…Other studies 8,21,[23][24][25][26][27][28]29 investigated the relationship between the risk factors existing in the home environment and child development. These studies, in most cases, found a relationship between the children's poor performance in tests and the following risk factors: low maternal schooling 8,[25][26][27][28] ; the mother having done less than six antenatal consultations [25][26]29 ; unemployed parent 27 ; belonging to the lower strata of the economic classification 8,[25][26][27][28][29] ; having a mother who does not work outside the home 8 ; father's low schooling 24 ; having many siblings 28 ; less support from parents in caring for the child 28 and lower psychosocial stimulation in the home environment [25][26] .…”

“…Another aspect highlighted in the current literature on poverty measurement is that many researches consider poor people to be grouped in a broad socioeconomic category, not taking into account the different levels of poverty and the potential concentration of risk factors associated with each of them (6,8,18). In addition, it is assumed that urban poverty in particular affects the ecology of the development of the child, including its extrafamilial dimension (kindergartens, schools, neighborhood), and therefore its measurement has been a concern for researchers from different areas (7,19,20).…”

“…Therefore, to measure it and verify its various levels of manifestation can help comprehend the degree of effect that this phenomenon has on childhood development in a particular city or district. The importance should be highlighted of evaluating NPMD and verifying how much it is associated with descriptive variables of the poverty level of a given population, in a speci ic context (8,18).…”
