Predicting the IQ of young children from early developmental markers

The article presented by Peyre et al., this edition, addresses the extent to which we can predict the IQ of 5–6 year-old children, an age where in many countries children will enter formal education, from early assessments of developmental milestones. The study uses baseline data from a large population-based sample of French children from the EDEN prospective mother–child cohort study1 and presents data from 1100 children assessed at follow-up aged 5–6 years. The authors use developmental questionnaires completed by parent/carer at 6, 8, 12 and 24 months and use a predictive validity coefficient model to look at correlations with subsequent IQ.
