Pós-graduação em Bases Gerais da Cirurgia - FMB; Paralisia cerebral (PC) descreve um grupo de anormalidades permanentes do desenvolvimento, do movimento e da postura, causando limitação da atividade, que são atribuídas a um distúrbio não progressivo que ocorreu no cérebro em desenvolvimento do feto ou do bebê. As alterações motoras da paralisia cerebral são frequentemente acompanhadas de distúrbios da sensação, percepção, cognição, comunicação, comportamento e por problemas musculoesqueléticos secundários1. A paralisia cerebral está entre as causas mais comuns de incapacidade crônica na infância, com uma incidência entre 2 e 2,5 por 1000 nascidos vivos nos países desenvolvidos 2-4. Embora a lesão cerebral primária seja não-progressiva, a patologia é permanente e muitas das manifestações clínicas, incluindo as consequências musculoesqueléticas, são adquiridas e progressivas com o tempo. Entre 25% e 35% dessas crianças são gravemente comprometidas e apresentam dificuldades com suas atividades da vida diária (AVD), comunicação, mobilidade, e consequentemente com sua saúde, e por isso são dependentes de seus cuidadores para a maioria das suas necessidades. Essas condições têm um impacto significativo durante toda a vida dessas crianças...

This study expands upon previous research by utilizing nationally representative data and multivariate analyses to examine the relationship between an adolescent’s disability status and their likelihood of engaging in a spectrum of delinquent behaviors through age 16. Logistic regression models of 7,232 adolescents from the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth 1997 are used to investigate the association between the presence of a learning disability or emotional condition, chronic health condition, sensory condition, physical disability, or multiple conditions and ten delinquent acts, including violence-related delinquency, property crimes, drug offenses, and arrest. Additional analyses explore differences in delinquency prevalence by more specific types of limiting conditions. Results indicate that adolescents with learning disabilities or emotional conditions are particularly at risk of committing delinquent acts. Findings suggest that disability status is important to consider when examining adolescent delinquency; however, not all youth with disabilities have equal experiences.

This article uses data from the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth 1997 (NLSY97) to examine the relationship between disability, parental and youth university expectations in 1997, and youth high school completion and university enrolment by 2003. Results indicate that educational attainment is not equal for young adults with and without disabilities in the United States. Parents—but not adolescents—are likely to reduce their educational expectations when adolescents have a mild or serious disability, net of school performance. These parental—but not adolescent—expectations are significantly associated with high school completion. Finally, even after controlling for educational expectations and school performance, youth with serious disabilities are much less likely to graduate from high school than youth without disabilities. Despite the considerable strides made in the implementation of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, students with disabilities are not achieving educational parity in graded schooling.

A mielomeningocele (MM) é a forma mais freqüente e incapacitante dos defeitos de fechamento do tubo neural. As limitações motoras e sensitivas e os diversos problemas de saúde associados a essa condição podem comprometer a qualidade de vida relacionada à saúde (QVRS) dos portadores. Todavia, não esta claro como os diferentes níveis de lesão e de comprometimento motor influenciam na QVRS. O objetivo deste estudo foi avaliar a QVRS de crianças e adolescente com MM em comparação com indivíduos saudáveis da mesma faixa etária, e segundo o nível de lesão medular e o padrão de deambulação. Participaram do estudo portadores de MM entre 5 e 18 anos de idade, acompanhados na AACD-MG e indivíduos saudáveis pareados por idade e sexo. Os pacientes foram classificados segundo o nível neurológico da lesão medular (torácico, lombar alto, lombar baixo ou sacral) e o padrão de deambulação (comunitário, domiciliar, não funcional ou não deambulador). Os dados demográficos e clínicos foram obtidos por entrevista com o cuidador e completados com informações contidas no prontuário médico. O Child Health Questionnaire (CHQ-PF50) foi respondido pelos pais/responsáveis pela técnica de auto-aplicação. As propriedades psicométricas foram avaliadas pela qualidade dos dados (proporção de dados perdidos...

The purpose of this project was to discern the inherent tension present in narratives told by adolescents with a visual impairment as they attempted to make sense of their experiences, specifically those surrounding risk. Mediated action, based on the foundational work of Vygotsky and Bakhtin, was used as both a theoretical and methodological approach; it is the theory that there are two components that constitute any human action: the "agent," or the person who is doing the acting, and the "mediational means" that he or she is using to accomplish the action in question. Tension ensues as neither is able to fully explain human behaviour. Ten adolescents with a visual impairment participated in a narrative interview, revealing numerous counter-narratives surrounding risk-taking, including "experimentation undertaken using good judgment." Participants offered examples of how they engaged, appropriated, resisted and transformed the dominant narratives of disability and adolescence in their identity formation.

Rights of children and adolescents with disabilities Until not long ago, children with disabilities were made fun of, hidden away and, all too often, the victims of violence. Fortunately, this state of affairs has improved thanks to changes in the way disability is viewed and to the ratification, by 23 countries in the region, of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD).

AbstractThis study sought to compare the attributes of the Primary Health Care (PHC) provided by caregivers of the Family Health Strategy (FHS) to children and adolescents with and without physical disabilities in Palmas (State of Tocantins, Brazil). This is a cross-sectional, descriptive study with a quantitative approach. For data collection, the PCA Tool-Brazil (child version) was applied to caregivers of children and adolescents residing and registered in family health teams. The attributes of primary care were evaluated through scores measured according to the criteria of the instrument. The results indicated that three attributes had scores above the cutoff point for the physically disabled population and two attributes for the population without disabilities. Overall, the data showed no significant differences between children with and without disabilities from the standpoint of caregivers. The general score also showed a below satisfactory score in both groups. The evaluation of the attributes of the PHC was characterized as low-quality care to children and adolescents, be they physically challenged or not, which highlights the fact that the biggest challenges lie in ensuring health care to children and adolescents.

ABSTRACT The intent of this study was to explore the life and values of three home schooled adolescents with learning disabilities and their families, to determine the level of social inclusion for the students and to examine academic individualization within the learning process of these students. The data were collected through interviews with teaching parents, the students and non-parent coaches or teachers. Observations took place in the home and outside the home in various locations for each student. Socially, the role of interest, context, friendships and social networks were all significant factors. Academically, the home school environment provided a dynamic intersection of different schooling environments with instructional characteristics that were deemed essential for learning. Despite the differences between families, the themes were similar across the case studies. The social landscape of these students looks different from regularly schooled children but it is healthy, with many opportunities for friendship and social networks. The academic environment allows for the advantages of tutorial and small-group instruction as well as opportunities to be included in larger, classroom-style groups in certain contexts. These three case studies demonstrate that home schooling can support the needs of children with learning disabilities through instructional strategies and through contextual advantages. For non-home schoolers...

Given the importance placed on participation and empowerment in global health initiatives, the perspective of young people with disabilities has emerged as a vital field of study. This critical ethnographic study gained insight into the perspectives of adolescents with disabilities aged 12 to 18 years who were affiliated with a community-based rehabilitation program in the urban slums of North India. The purpose of this research was to highlight the collective voices of adolescents with disabilities about their rehabilitation challenges, to explore how the culture influenced the rehabilitation challenges faced by adolescents, and to support collaborative work among adolescents with and without disabilities that would inform organizational activities. Fieldwork was conducted from January to May 2005 and October 2006 to March 2007 with 21 adolescents with disabilities, 11 adolescents without disability, and 10 community-based rehabilitation team members. Multiple data collection methods were utilized to ensure that participants could comfortably express their views. A conceptual framework called the ‘Adolescent Group Empowerment Pyramid’ was developed that illustrates one process for empowering adolescents with disabilities and their peers without disabilities within a community setting. Group empowerment involves adolescents with disabilities working towards assuming greater ownership over their rehabilitation while collaborating with their peers. The ‘group’ concept provided the foundation for the framework because adolescents viewed the group setting as enjoyable and effective. Three areas associated with meaningful group empowerment included: group participation...

This qualitative study with a phenomenological approach explored the friendship experiences of adolescents with intellectual disabilities from their own perspective. Five adolescents with intellectual disabilities from Community Living Toronto were interviewed using a semi-structured interview guide about the meaning, nature, formation, maintenance, and development of friendships. The interview questions were first pilot-tested with two adolescents with intellectual disabilities. The interviews were analyzed, and themes were identified. The findings indicated that these young people attached helping, trust, affection, intimacy, and companionship to the meaning of friendship. Participants identified friends as casual friends, best friends, buddies, and family friends. Adolescents with ID did not report intimate and reciprocated friendships with buddies and family friends. Disclosing secrets, personal information and feelings and receiving emotional support were limited only to relationships with best friends with disabilities, in their age group and from their classroom. Adolescents with ID indicated that they wanted more friends. The participants’ suggestions for friendship formation were to meet people, starting a conversation, and smiling. They also identified out of school contact...

Research on adolescents suggests that young people are able to form reasonable expectations about future life-course transitions—and that these expectations are predictive of future outcomes. However, less is known about how these expectations might vary for adolescents with disabilities, who might face additional challenges when transitioning to adulthood. The present study addresses this gap in the literature by using nationally representative data from the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth (NLSY97) to suggest that young people's expectations about pregnancy, parenthood, education, and employment do vary according to disability status. Furthermore, disability status conditions the relationship between these expectations and their future outcomes. In general, adolescents with disabilities are more proficient in the prediction of educational outcomes than employment or pregnancy outcomes. However, their expectations about education are significantly lower—and expectations about teenage parenthood much higher—than those of adolescents without disabilities.

This paper investigates how the learning environments and family dynamics differ if households have a child with a disability or a parent with a disability. Using data from the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth 1997, results indicate that children with disabilities experience similar learning environments as other children, but have somewhat weaker relationships with their parents. In two-parent families, maternal disability lowers parents' school involvement and is associated with a less enriching home environment. Paternal disability reduces maternal monitoring and positive family activities possibly because mothers divert care-giving resources from their children to their male partners. Children in mother-headed households experience learning environments and family dynamics that are similar regardless of their own disability status or that of their mothers, but these outcomes are markedly inferior to those of children growing up in two-parent households. Future research on adolescent development should consider the disability status of children and parents, with particular attention to patterns of gendered care-giving in American families.

The current literature recognizes the fact that persons with disabilities have historically been deprived of their sexual and reproductive health (SRH) rights. Little is known, however, about the situation for women, men, and adolescents with disabilities in humanitarian settings. The Women’s Refugee Commission led a participatory research project with partners to explore the risks, needs, and barriers for refugees with disabilities to access SRH services, and the practical ways in which these challenges could be addressed. The study gathered information from refugee women, men, and adolescents aged 15–19 with physical, intellectual, sensory, and mental impairments in refugee settings in Kenya, Nepal, and Uganda. Findings showed that refugees with disabilities demonstrated varying degrees of awareness around SRH, especially regarding the reproductive anatomy, family planning, and sexually transmitted infections. Among barriers to accessing services, lack of respect by providers was reported as the most hurtful. Pregnant women with disabilities were often discriminated against by providers and scolded by caregivers for becoming pregnant and bearing children; marital status was a large factor that determined if a pregnancy was accepted. Risks of sexual violence prevailed across sites...

Unger, Donald; This research aims to investigate the relationship between disability status, bullying and suicide ideation among adolescents in Delaware. Through use of secondary data, the project will explore whether adolescents with disabilities in Delaware who are bullied experience greater rates of thoughts, plans or attempts at suicide than adolescents without disabilities. This inquiry will be addressed through answering the questions: "Do adolescents with disabilities in Delaware report being bullied more frequently than those without a disability?" and "Is bullying more likely to be associated with suicide thoughts/attempts by adolescents with disabilities in Delaware than those without a disability?" The research questions will be answered through analysis of various Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance System (YRBS) questions and several statistical equations through the use of SPSS. Through the analysis, it was found that adolescents who report having a disability are more likely to be bullied and have some form of suicide ideation than those who are not bullied and those student who reported not having a disability. This is one of the first research studies to date to look at the relationship between disability status, bullying and suicide ideation among adolescents in Delaware. A report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that discusses the increased suicide rates in Delaware is highlighted and suggestions for prevention are discussed.; University of Delaware...

Estudos nacionais e internacionais têm discorrido acerca das implicações, provenientes do nascimento de um segundo filho na família, ao desenvolvimento infantil do primogênito. O objetivo do presente estudo foi identificar a experiência de irmãos de crianças com deficiência intelectual e de irmãos de crianças com desenvolvimento típico, acerca do cotidiano e das práticas de apoio exercidas no contexto familiar. De abordagem qualitativa e comparativa, o estudo exploratório contou com a participação de 12 adolescentes, irmãos mais velhos de crianças com deficiência e de crianças com desenvolvimento típico. Para coleta de dados foram utilizadas entrevistas semiestruturadas, as quais foram analisadas à luz da técnica do Discurso do Sujeito Coletivo. Os principais resultados apontam que os irmãos de ambos os grupos familiares representam importante fonte de ajuda às famílias. Além disso, os irmãos de ambos os grupos relataram positivamente acerca do relacionamento estabelecido com a criança mais nova. Novos estudos nessa direção se fazem necessários para que se possa ampliar a compreensão do tema e disponibilizar maiores fontes de suporte aos irmãos de crianças com deficiência ou mesmo aos irmãos mais velhos de crianças com desenvolvimento típico.; National and international studies have discoursed about the implications...

INTRODUCTION: Adolescents with physical disabilities are prone to experience lowered self-esteem which can result in negative consequences for the individual as well as the community. It has been found that dancing may have positive emotional, social and developmental consequences. AIM: The aim of this study was to determine the influence of wheelchair dancing on the self-esteem of adolescents with physical disabilities. METHODS: Twenty-four participants were involved in this quantitative study. A before-and-after experimental study design was used which included a control group. Structured interviews were conducted to obtain information from the participants. The experimental group participated in wheelchair dancing, while the control group did not. RESULTS: A difference between the two groups was observed with 72.7% of the intervention group displaying an increase in self-esteem, compared to 54.6% of the control group. Improved self-esteem manifested in, for example, an improvement in eye contact and sense of responsibility. CONCLUSION: The researchers concluded that wheelchair dancing may have a positive influence on the self-esteem of adolescents with physical disabilities.
