  Title Foetal distress and birth interventions in children with developmental delay syndromes: A prospective controlled trial
Journal Clin Chiropr. 2006 Dec;9(4):182-185
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Article
Abstract/Notes Objective: To investigate the incidence of birth intervention/foetal distress in children with developmental delay syndromes (attention deficit disorder, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, dyslexia, dyspraxia, obsessive compulsive disorder, Tourette's syndrome of childhood, autistic spectrum disorders).

Methodology: A population of 100 children aged 4–15 years and diagnosed with developmental delay syndrome(s) were investigated using a parental questionnaire to determine whether they had suffered any birth interventions or distress. These results were compared with an age- and gender-matched control group.

Results: On the basis of this relatively small study, significant risk of development delay syndrome(s) occurred with both foetal distress (p < 0.001) and Ventouse assisted delivery (p < 0.01).
