Objective: To investigate the physical and mental development of children of assisted reproductive techniques(ART) at 1-3 years, in the limited samples and the limited age range. Methods: A total of 266 ART children, including 106 twins, at 1-3 years were follow-up visited from February 2008 to February 2011. The control group comprised 129 children, including 84 twins, who were naturally bred. The neonatal outcomes, physical and mental development were evaluated. Results: Parent age in the ART children group was elder than that in control group. There were no significant differences in BMI, MDI and PDI between two groups of ART children and control, and between two twins' groups. A multivariate regression analysis indicated that the conception mode did not affect MDI and PDI. Conclusions: There are no significantly differences in the physical and psychomotor development between ART children and normal conception children in this study.
