TOBAR, Flor L  and  LENCINA, Manuel J. The "Learning Through Play" project: Importance of interdisciplinary work among children born prematurely and their family groups in an area of high socio-environmental risk. Arch. argent. pediatr. [online]. 2017, vol.115, n.6, pp.588-594. ISSN 0325-0075.

Several socio-environmental risk factors causea large number of children born prematurely, and without neurological disorders, to have low scores in their development, particularly in the cognitive and socio-emotional skills areas, thus evidencing a potential future risk. Strengthening bonds with the family and caregivers is critical for their adequate development. This article reports on the experience of an interdisciplinary team from Hospital Eva Perón de Tucumán, who designed a program called "Learning Through Play"for the promotion of child development and aimed at parents of preterm infants seen at the Follow-up Outpatient Clinic and the Department of Social Services, with the collaboration of the Department of Nutrition.

Keywords : Preterm newborn; Environmental risk; Intervention; Bond; Cognition.
