Dr Treyvaud's research focuses on understanding the developmental and mental health outcomes for children and parents after preterm birth and finding ways to intervene using parents and the home environment to strive for better outcomes. Specific areas of research focus include mental health outcomes for children and parents after high-risk birth, how biological/medical and family/environmental factors interact to influence children's risk and resilience, and assessment of parent-child interaction and how this relates to child outcomes and potential for intervention. Dr Treyvaud is also particularly interested in the use of different technologies for intervention such as web-based applications and telemedicine.
- Development and evaluation of an online early intervention program for families with infants born <34 weeks' gestation: the e-prem program.
- Neurobehaviour between birth and 40 weeks gestation in infants born <30 weeks gestation and parental psychological wellbeing: predictors of brain development and child outcomes.
- Executive dysfunction and brain development in very preterm 13-year-olds - A longitudinal MRI study.
- Does n-3 LCPUFA supplementation during pregnancy improve the Intelligence Quotient of children at school age?
