The case of disability in the family: impact on health care utilization and expenditures for nondisabled members. (1/418)

Families with a disabled member undergo heightened emotional and financial stress, which can arise from caring for the person with one or more disabilities over the life course or at the end of life. Because health care resources are strained by the needs of the disabled family member, nondisabled members are often limited in health care access and utilization when they are most in need of care. This analysis uses the National Medical Expenditure Survey to describe families with disabled members, based on multiple definitions of disability, and to examine health care utilization and expenditures by nondisabled family members. Indications of higher use of medical care by adult, nondisabled members of such families support the frequent reports in the literature of stress occurring in these situations. The signals of a household rationing effect for families near and at poverty levels should alert policy makers to consider the needs of the whole family when creating or modifying assistance programs.  (+info)

Can routine information systems be used to monitor serious disability? (2/418)

OBJECTIVE: To determine whether reliable birth cohort prevalence rates of disabling conditions in early childhood can be obtained from child health information systems. DESIGN: Comparison of two sources of information on motor and sensory disabilities: from child health information systems held by health authorities, and a population register that uses multiple sources of ascertainment. SETTING: The counties of Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire, and Northamptonshire. PARTICIPANTS: Children born to residents of the three counties between 1984 and 1989. RESULTS: Eight hundred and twenty children (6.0/1000 live births) were identified from the child health system as having one or more of the conditions, and 580 (4.2/1000 live births) were identified from the population register; however, only 284 children were identified by both sources. CONCLUSIONS: It is currently impossible to monitor trends in the prevalence rate of disabling disorders in childhood using the child health information systems. Agreement about ways of collecting, recording, and collating information on disability would be a useful step towards realising the full potential of these systems.  (+info)

Four key questions that identify severe disability. (3/418)

BACKGROUND: Six hundred and four surviving children aged 2 years, who had been entered into a neonatal trial of fresh frozen plasma on the incidence of intraventricular haemorrhage, were grouped into four categories of disability based on a review by a full paediatric assessment. A 29 item questionnaire completed by the children's health visitors was used to group the children into the same categories. AIMS: To explore whether severe disability could be identified by using only a few of the 29 questions. METHOD: The sensitivity and specificity of individual questions were used first to find the subset of questions that best identified children with severe disability. The efficacy of the four most useful questions was tested in a separate cohort of 105 children for whom health visitors had completed questionnaires at the age of 2 years, and who had similarly been assessed by a paediatrician. RESULTS: In the original trial cohort, the four questions correctly identified 56 of the 61 children with the most severe disabilities as assessed by the paediatrician, and seven children were falsely identified as being severely disabled. In the second cohort, the four questions correctly identified six of the seven children classified as severely disabled by the paediatrician, with no false positives. CONCLUSION: If four such questions were included in routine child information systems at age 2 years, it might be possible to obtain useful data on the prevalence of severe disability in children.  (+info)

Estimating mortality, morbidity and disability due to malaria among Africa's non-pregnant population. (4/418)

The contribution of malaria to morbidity and mortality among people in Africa has been a subject of academic interest, political advocacy, and speculation. National statistics for much of sub-Saharan Africa have proved to be an unreliable source of disease-specific morbidity and mortality data. Credible estimates of disease-specific burdens are required for setting global and national priorities for health in order to rationalize the use of limited resources and lobby for financial support. We have taken an empirical approach to defining the limits of Plasmodium falciparum transmission across the continent and interpolated the distributions of projected populations in 1995. By combining a review of the literature on malaria in Africa and models of acquired functional immunity, we have estimated the age-structured rates of the fatal, morbid and disabling sequelae following exposure to malaria infection under different epidemiological conditions.  (+info)

A method for bronchoscopic evaluation of salivary aspiration in a disabled child. (6/418)

Chronic aspiration is a cause of life-threatening respiratory complications and repeated hospital admissions, particularly in children with neurological disabilities. Determining the source of aspiration is important for optimizing treatment. This report describes a simple technique to demonstrate salivary aspiration during fibreoptic bronchoscopy. A child with a history of recurrent pneumonia was given methylene blue orally 2 h prior to fibreoptic bronchoscopy. Bronchoscopy was carried out through a laryngeal mask airway under inhalational anaesthesia. The stained saliva was seen to be pooling in the valleculae and then running down the trachea into the bronchi, confirming salivary aspiration.  (+info)

Behaviour management needs for the orthodontic treatment of children with disabilities. (7/418)

A displeasing dental appearance may have a significant emotional impact on an individual's well being. Although malocclusions occur more often in physically and/or mentally handicapped children than in normal children, the most severely handicapped patients are those least likely to receive orthodontic treatment. This investigation studied the modes of behaviour management used in the orthodontic treatment of disabled children, and the preferred criteria. The files of 49 disabled children were retrospectively evaluated. Two classification systems, the Frankl Behaviour Rating Scale (FBRS), and that of Owen and Graber were found to be unsuitable for determining the appropriate treatment modality. Five specific factors, frequently seen in disabled children, gag reflex, drooling, uncontrollable movements, inability to remain still, and the need for additional procedures, were graded and a scoring system was devised to include these factors within the assessment. This scoring system may be used to evaluate new patients and to assist in the choice of the appropriate behavioural management mode.  (+info)

Orthodontic treatment for disabled children: motivation, expectation, and satisfaction. (8/418)

This study was designed to measure motivation for and expectations of proposed orthodontic treatment for disabled children, and to examine the level of satisfaction with the results of this treatment, in the eyes of the parents. A two-part questionnaire was sent to the parents of consecutively treated disabled children. The first part was sent to the parents of all the patients treated, while the second was only sent to those whose child had completed treatment. The response rate was over 90 per cent. The parents expected improvement in the child's appearance with a concomitant improvement in his/her social acceptance. These expectations from the treatment were found to be exaggerated, with only a minority of the parents claiming a marked improvement in their child's everyday functioning (four out of 27), or a significant social improvement (six out of 27). Nevertheless, most of the parents (26 out of 27) were satisfied with the treatment, and reported that 17 of the children themselves, who were aware of a change, considered it an improvement. A majority of the children understood the reasons for treatment, in the most general of terms. Close friends regarded treatment results as positive (20 out of 27). With only one exception, the parents stated that they would repeat the procedure, given the same set of circumstances, and all of them would recommend it for other disabled children. It may be concluded that even though orthodontic treatment in this groups of patients does not yield the desired social influence, the individual benefits from the treatment are worthwhile.  (+info)

IDEA helps school personnel ensure school safety and hold students responsible for their actions, while protecting the rights of children with disabilities. The discipline procedures only apply where the discipline infraction results in a change in placement for longer than 10 school days, and was a direct result of the childs disability. Unless a disciplinary infraction is the direct result of a childs disability, the child will be disciplined in the same manner and for the same duration as a non-disabled student.. Question: What process will determine whether the disciplinary infraction was the direct result of a childs disability?. Answer: The LEA (a representative from the school system), the parent and the relevant members of the IEP Team must determine whether the conduct in question was a manifestation of the childs disability through a manifestation determination. This tool will analyze the childs behavior in different settings and over a period of time to determine whether the ...

A phrase I read quoted on a blog, written by a reporter in a newspaper, was that these parents wear their childs disability like a thorny crown meaning that we use it to gain sympathy and to achieve what we want. Nothing could be further from the truth. The hard fact is, your childs disability becomes a major part of your life and something that cannot and should not be ignored or not talked about just in case it embarrasses someone else. Other parents complain about their kids keeping bad company or being rude and untidy at home and we are sympathetic; however, if the parents of a special needs child have a much needed moan about how many times they had to clean up excrement that day or about the huge tantrum thrown in the shopping centre because the child is scared of crowds, there is an uncomfortable silence. We are not looking for martyrdom, just someone to say Wow, that must have been hard for you, how are you doing? Most of the time we cope and can live our lives with a smile on our ...
The diagnosis of autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) has increased six-fold over the past decade in Bangladesh. However, this resource-poor country has no comprehensive early screening system for neurodevelopmental disorders.
Our second daughter (Roberta) was born that same year, 4 months before Andreas diagnosis. Immediate hearing testing was inconclusive; it wasnt until she was 13 months old that her hearing-impairment was deemed conclusive. We were now the parents of two hearing-impaired children, four hearing aids, and little else. We knew no one who shared this experience. It was frightening, isolating, depressing. With the help of some wonderful friends and a few good professionals, I began to relate the experience to Kubler-Ross On Death and Dying, viewing the process as one of grieving ...
Childrens Special Health Care Services. Childrens Special Health Care Services (CSHCS) provides certain approved medical service coverage to some children and adults with special health care needs.

CSHCS helps persons with chronic health problems by providing: ...
According to the most recent data from the 2011-12 NSCH, 54.4 percent of children were reported to receive care in a medical home. However, rates of medical home access varied by special health care need status, with less than half (46.8 percent) of CSHCN reported to have a medical home compared to 56.3 percent of children without such needs. These rates reflect parent-report of five measurable components of medical home: personal health care provider; usual source of sick and well care; receipt of family-centered care; referrals for doctors or health services if needed; and receipt of care coordination if more than one service was used in the past year.1 In 2011-12, CSHCN were slightly more likely to have a personal health care provider or usual place for sick and routine care (approximately 93 percent) compared to 89.7 percent and 91.0 percent, respectively, of children without such needs. In contrast, sizable disparities were observed for both receipt of needed referrals and care ...

Adolescence is a time of rapid change for young people and their families. This period brings a negotiation of relationships and roles, changing life routines, and a mixture of fear and excitement about new opportunities. Adolescents with special health care needs and their families are no exception to these changes; yet they also face additional challenges. Planning for long-term health care, medical insurance, and day-to-day support needs may bring family members more closely into the transition process as the adolescent strives for independence. Parents legitimate fears about safety and security may lead them to remain engaged in their childrens lives. Finally, families and young adults must negotiate a variety of new service systems and rules during this period.. This study examined the transition planning experiences and concerns of family members of young adults with special health care needs throughout Massachusetts. As a planning activity of the Department of Public Healths ...

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander (hereafter, Aboriginal Australian) children experience inferior health outcomes when compared to other Australian children and this includes higher rates of disability [1, 2]. The issues around Aboriginal childhood disability are complex and multifaceted. The first years of a childs life are critical periods for social and emotional development as well as health [3, 4]. The antecedents of disability can be associated with environmental factors rather than biological ones. Aboriginal Australians are twice as likely to engage in or be exposed to risk factors that can lead to disability, such as smoking, binge drinking, obesity, using illicit drugs, poor housing conditions and being victims of violence [5, 6]. Disability, compounded by social disadvantage, can lead to a perpetuating cycle of health disparities and inequities. As a consequence, Aboriginal Australians with a disability have been described as doubly disadvantaged [7]. Given that Aboriginal ...

As one of the largest federal block grant programs, Title V is a key source of support for promoting and improving the health and well-being of the nations mothers, children, including children with special needs, and their families.
Our study found a beneficial relationship between numerous health outcomes and the medical home in children without special health care needs. Although some of the effect sizes were modest, the health care utilization outcomes (preventive visits, outpatient sick visits, and ED sick visits) were robust (∼30%).. Children without special health care needs compose the majority of the pediatric population (,80% in this national dataset). The AAP has long promoted the medical home for all children,4 and the Affordable Care Act of 2009 promotes the patient-centered medical home; this study provides further evidence supporting these policies. Our findings are significant given that studies to date have focused primarily on CSHCN. Although some studies have included all children, it was unclear if the positive associations found were due solely to the effect of CSHCN in the study populations, or if they exist independent of CSHCN.12,30-41 Our findings suggest that the benefits of the medical home for ...

But we want to bring out awareness for ALL the special needs groups. And right now, we want to highlight bullying with these special kids. After all, it IS child abuse prevention month. Children with visible and invisible disabilities are significantly more likely than their peers to be the victims of bullying behavior. The type of bullying experienced often differs according to the childs disability. (But we believe that NO child should be bullied!) One more thing on Autism, and its a FACT: It may seem that autism is a wholly negative diagnosis. But almost everyone on the autism spectrum has a great to deal to offer the world. People with autism are among the most forthright, non-judgemental, passionate people youll ever meet. And if you have ever met someone with autism (or any other mental disability) it would be a lie to say they havent touched you in a way ...
Given the unprecedented environment in the United States in which two-thirds of the adult population meets the criteria for being overweight or obese, the implications for women in the reproductive age period are unique in the history of the country. In May 2006, at the request of the Health Resources and Services Administrations Maternal and Child Health Bureau in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the National Research Council and the Institute of Medicine convened a workshop to examine emerging research findings related to the complex relationship of the biological, behavioral, psychological, and social interactions that affect maternal and pregnancy weight on maternal and child health outcomes.
Dr Clare Blackburn worked with a team of researchers from the University of Warwick to study data from the 2004/5 national Family Resources Survey (FRS). She said, The FRS has data on 16,012 children aged 0-18 years. We found that 7.3% of these were reported as being disabled, almost two percentage points (250,000 children) more than published estimates for 2003-4. The highest prevalence of childhood disability was found among those with the poorest income.. The results of this study clearly show that disabled children in the UK today continue to experience income inequality and material and social disadvantage. Speaking about the reasons for this, Dr Blackburn from the University of Warwick said:. Households with disabled children have caring responsibilities that makes them far less able to seek employment and far less able to have any career progression for those who are able to also to take up job. With this reduced ability to earn an income comes the significant additional financial ...
For Your Special Needs Child: Making the Holiday Break Special, Healthy, & Fun! The most important thing about engaging in holiday activities with a child with special needs or engaging the attention of a child with special needs is this: the child must be feeling well and be present. A child who is not feeling well or who is zoned out or who is exhibiting maladaptive or combative behaviors will not have the same positive experience as a child who is alert and fit, and the experience wont be as happy for caregivers or family members. Sometimes these behaviors are the result of illness, pain, imbalanced gut flora and their sequelae, inflammation, reactions to allergenic foodstuffs, incomplete digestion, or lack of energy. Many children with special needs have metabolic, gastrointestinal, and immune situations that have been visibly helped by a special diet and enhanced nutrition. For example, casein and gluten are problematic food components for so many children. These proteins go through ...

More than 1 million California children and youth have a need for health care services of a type or amount beyond that required by children generally. Their ongoing health problems-physical, behavioral, or developmental-can affect their ability to function and participate in important educational and social activities. In some cases their health problems can shorten their lives (1). Medical care for children with special health care needs (CSHCN) is often complicated by the co-occurrence of social, emotional, and academic problems (1, 2). Because of the higher caregiving burdens, families of CSHCN tend to experience more stress and difficulties with employment and finances than other families (1, 2 ...
More than 1.25 million California children and youth, and nearly 14 million nationwide, have or are at increased risk for a chronic health condition and require care and related services of a type or amount beyond that required by children generally (1). Their ongoing health problems-physical, behavioral, or developmental-can affect their ability to function and participate in important educational and social activities, and, in some cases, can shorten their lives (2, 3). Although advances in medical care have extended and improved the lives of millions of children, obtaining timely, appropriate, and affordable care remains a problem for many families (2, 3). The vast majority of children with special health care needs (CSHCN) nationally (86%) do not receive care that meets federal standards for a well-functioning system (4). Further, racial/ethnic and socioeconomic inequities in access to care and other supports can lead to poorer outcomes for vulnerable CSHCN and their families (2, 3) ...
1 BACKGROUND The Federal Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB) administers the Title V program, a federal program devoted to improving the health of children and mothers. Each state receives funds from MCHB annually to support activities to meet the goals of Title V. Through the block grant application process, by which funds are allocated, each state describes its program structure and specific activities to accomplish the Title V goals. Since the mid-1990s block grant applications must also include indicators of how well states are accomplishing their goals to improve the health of mothers and children. MCHB requires that all states report on a core set of performance and outcome measures. In addition, individual states select state performance and outcome measures by which to assess their progress in areas of particular concern to that state. States are given instructions regarding measurement of each performance or outcome measure. There is some latitude, however, in the reporting of these ...
This study has uncovered the complex, largely invisible, lives of families with children who require assisted ventilation at home. Our findings demonstrate that these families face tremendous distress and enrichment on a daily basis. Much of the distress reported by these families is related to their encounters with health and social services systems. Although adapting to the childs disabilities would already seem like an extraordinary challenge for most families, they also have to draw on their limited personal and material resources to negotiate highly fragmented and commonly unsupportive health and social services networks. This was particularly problematic for parents who felt the primary responsibility for ensuring that their children would receive the complex services that they required. These parents found themselves continually having to learn and manage new roles, most of which parents felt unprepared to assume. This is consistent with United Kingdom data on families with ...

Cerebral palsy is the leading cause of childhood disability affecting function and development. The incidence of the condition has not changed in more than 4 decades, despite significant advances in the medical care of neonates.
Hamilton, Ont. June 13, 2011-Proposals recommending routine screening of all children for autism gets a thumbs down from researchers at McMaster University.. In a study in the online edition of the journal Pediatrics, the researchers say there is not enough sound evidence to support the implementation of a routine population-based screening program for autism.. Not only are there no good screening tools or effective treatments but there is no evidence yet that routine screening does more good than harm, said Dr. Jan Willem Gorter, a researcher in McMasters CanChild Centre for Childhood Disability Research and associate professor of pediatrics.. Contrary to the McMaster researchers findings, the American Academy of Pediatrics recently recommended that screening for autism be incorporated into routine practice, such as a childs regular physician check-up, regardless of whether a concern has been raised by the parents.. Autism, or the autism spectrum disorders (ASDs), is a group of serious ...

Parents, and caregivers of our blind children; you will need a lot of support and resources to help you along this journey. I totally understand your need to want answers as to how to seek help and the importance of knowing what lies ahead for your child. It is absolutely imperative to find the support you need; as well as learning all that you can about your childs disability and education. I know that at first this will all seem overwhelming, but it is extremely helpful to communicate with parents that are raising a blind child.. When Justin was an infant, I would often ask other parents of sighted children how long would it take for my son to sleep all night? The responses that I would receive were, give it six months and he will soon be sleeping without awakening in the middle of the night. I waited for the six months and still Justin would not sleep as I was told he would. At the time of asking the other parents about the sleep, I wasnt aware that blind childrens sleep patterns are ...

RULE 160-4-7-.21. Definitions. (1) Accommodation - Changes in instruction that enable children to demonstrate their abilities in the classroom or assessment/test setting. Accommodations are designed to provide equity, not advantage, for children with disabilities. Accommodations include assistive technology as well as alterations to presentation, response, scheduling, or settings. When used appropriately, they reduce or even eliminate the effects of a childs disability; but do not reduce or lower the standards or expectations for content. Accommodations, that are appropriate for assessments do not invalidate assessment results..

I remember when I wanted to take my son to a special school, they charged me R2 000 and I couldnt afford it because I was unemployed. So, I thought to myself how can I teach my son? she said.. Upon doing research online and reading up on her sons autism condition, and after being told by doctors that he was blind and would never be able to walk or talk properly, she started to homeschool him.. I started educating myself about his condition and talking to other parents who are also homeschooling their special needs children. They gave me the necessary resources and little by little I started seeing an improvement in my sons condition.. It is thereafter that she decided to use the skills that she had gained through taking care of her son to help other parents in the same situation.. She then began babysitting and teaching children with special needs from her small home. Most parents in the township segregate their special needs children at home as means of protecting them from the outside ...
