Home Intervention Improves Cognitive and Social-Emotional Scores in Iron-Deficient Anemic Infants

Researchers Betsy Lozoff, Julia B. Smith, Katy M. Clark, Carmen Gloria Perales, Francisca Rivera, and Marcela Castillo conducted a study to determine if a home-based intervention to foster child development improves behavior and development of infants with Iron-Deficient Anemia (IDA). Results showed that home-based intervention to foster child development improved cognitive and social-emotional scores in infants with IDA, but social-emotional differences remained between infants with IDA and those without IDA.
