The concept of risky baby was introduced to determine in advance which babies are likely to encounter developmental delay and developmental problems. Thus, these babies can be caught early and included in education and physical therapy programs. These babies are evaluated by a pediatric neurologist every 3 months in the first year of their lives, if necessary, Denver, Bayley etc. developmental tests are used.

Premature babies constitute a significant portion of risky babies. The lower the baby’s birth week and weight, the higher the risk of developing cerebral palsy in these babies.
