[Literature Library] A systematic review to examine whether effects of early life intervention on linear growth correspond to effects on neurobehavioral development

This systematic review found that effects of early life intervention on length-for-age Z scores (LAZ) or height-for-age Z scores (HAZ) were significantly associated with social emotional scores, but not cognitive, language, or motor development scores. Caregiving, as a category of interventions, was found to have 4 to 5 times greater effect on developmental outcomes than that of nutritional supplementation.
