Data were analyzed by SPSS software (version 15) and analyzed by means of Kolmogorov-Smirnov statistical tests and t-test. Independent samples were analyzed at the significant level of P=0.05.
Results: It was found that mean somatic developmental indicators in congenital hypothyroid children, compared with those in the healthy group were significantly lower. However, the score for all children was above a standard deviation one unit.
Conclusion: Although the mean developmental indices in hypothyroid children under treatment, based on Ages & Stages Questionnaires were lower than those in the control group, it was acceptable
