Preemies can catch up in vocabulary by teen years

Reuters: A new study says that by the age of 16, children born very prematurely can catch up to children born at full term in their ability to identify names of things. H. Gerry Taylor, a professor of pediatrics at the School of Medicine who was not involved in the study, said, “This leaves one on a high note, that some of these kids do well.”
