Children whose mothers used P while pregnant find it harder to learn to walk, draw and grasp objects, according to new findings.
An on-going joint study between New Zealand and US researchers has been tracking the neurodevelopment of 107 children in Auckland whose mothers used methamphetamine during pregnancy.
In the latest findings, the children were assessed in a series of cognitive and motor performance tests while between the ages of one and three.
The results showed they performed more poorly when compared with a control group of infants at a series of motor skill tasks such as learning to grasp objects, hold a cup or a pencil, walking, jumping and skipping.

Australia's teenagers are increasingly becoming trapped in a culture of booze, drugs and gambling that is disrupting classrooms, stretching resources and contributing to mental health, violence and bullying.
New studies show that high school students are bringing their problems to school after weekend bingeing and that children as young as 12 are learning to gamble.
But Australian society tended to accept alcohol abuse as normal compared to the use of illicit drugs, "an aspect of the cultural position that needed to be addressed", a National Council on Drugs survey of more than 200 public, private and religious schools said.
