dc.description.abstractThis paper looks into both the causes of LBW [low birth weight] and its consequences on the physical and cognitive development of children and their resilience. It investigates how socioeconomic class can be involved in these causes and consequences by comparing factors involved in pre-natal and neonatal care including programs like WIC, access to medical care and NICUs. It focuses specifically on how these factors directly affect the infant's likelihood for survival and success both as an infant and a young child. "Babies who are very low in birth weight . . . have a 25 percent chance of dying before age one" (CTDB). The paper concludes with proposed remedies such as early intervention, prevention and holistic care for both pre-natal mothers and LBW children like that offered at PACT. [From Introduction]en_US
