Results: At one year, 17% of children were developmentally delayed, defined as scoring in the monitoring zone on at least 2 of the 5 developmental domains of the Ages and Stages Questionnaire. Prenatal depression, preterm birth, low community engagement, and non-daily parent-child interaction increased the risk of delay. Protective factors for children in ‘at risk’ environments included relationship happiness, parenting self-efficacy, community engagement, higher social support, and daily parent-child interaction.
