Preterm infants have a heightened risk of feeding problems. The NEO can be used to assess prefeeding or oral feeding capacity, and the scoring criteria are based on the infant’s current postmenstrual age. Previous work on the tool demonstrates that the NEO holds promise for being an important and psychometrically sound measurement of feeding for preterm infants in the NICU. In this talk, testing procedures and scoring of the NEO will be introduced.
