BACKGROUND: While participation is essential to a child's health and well-being, little is known about participation patterns of young children with disabilities. OBJECTIVE: This study described the participation of children with disabilities under age 6, and examined the extent to which the child's factors (i.e., age, complexity of child's condition), family factors (i.e., general family functioning, income) and environmental factors (i.e., environmental helpfulness) affect participation dimensions (frequency, involvement, desire for change) in three different settings: home, daycare/preschool and community...

BACKGROUND: Persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities (DD) have higher incidences of overweight and obesity than the general population and are currently underserved in health promotion programs. Restricted diets due to sensory sensitivity and physiological difference are often followed by persons with DD resulting in nutrient inadequacies, which may contribute to overweight and obesity. Closing the gap of healthcare disparities for persons with DD must start by increasing awareness of factors causing overweight and obesity, and development of strategies and programs to reduce incidences of overweight and obesity for persons with DD...

BACKGROUND: Limited research has evaluated the relationship between dietary behavior and mortality among those with mobility limitations. OBJECTIVE: To examine the association between dietary behavior and mortality in a national sample of American adults with mobility limitations. METHODS: Data from the 2003-2006 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey were utilized. Participants were followed through 2011. Based on self-report, analyzed participants included those with mobility limitations (N = 1369)...

BACKGROUND: Hearing loss is prevalent, but few studies have investigated its associations with common medical conditions. OBJECTIVE: The objective was to assess the prevalence of medical conditions among individuals with hearing loss, compared to those without hearing loss, in people aged 65 years and older. METHODS: The National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) collects data on a variety of health-related topics, including disability. Three years of NHIS data (2011-2013; unweighted n = 53,111) were pooled to examine subpopulations of individuals with hearing loss...

BACKGROUND: Children residing in rural areas face unique barriers to physical activity participation. Further, while children with a disability who reside in metropolitan areas face barriers hindering physical activity, rurally residing children with a disability may face the augmented combination of these barriers that could have negative health implications. Parents are often the key advocates for children with disabilities and are likely to have valuable insight into the opportunities and barriers to physical activity for their child...

BACKGROUND: Few studies have examined the association between daily physical activity and cognitive function among older adults with Parkinson's disease (PD). OBJECTIVE: Here we evaluate the association between accelerometer-assessed physical activity and cognition among older patients with PD. METHODS: Cognition assessed via the Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MoCA). Moderate-to-vigorous physical activity (MVPA) was assessed via accelerometry over a 1-2 week monitoring period...

BACKGROUND: Youth with disabilities are at risk of poor health outcomes as they transition to adult healthcare. Although space and place play an important role in accessing healthcare little is known about the spatial aspects of youth's transition from pediatric to adult healthcare. OBJECTIVE: To understand the spaces of well-being as youth with physical disabilities transition from pediatric to adult healthcare. METHODS: This study draws on a qualitative design involving 63 in-depth interviews with young adults (n = 22), parents (n = 17), and clinicians (n = 24) involved in preparing young adults for transition...

BACKGROUND: Young people with visual impairment (VI) face many environmental barriers that influence physical activity. OBJECTIVE: The aims of the study were to assess the level of physical activity (PA) in students with VI, with regard to their age, gender, level of VI, body mass index and abdominal obesity (AO), and to identify the percentage of study participants who did not meet the international recommendations for PA. METHODS: Anthropometric measurements were taken to assess the body mass index and waist-to-height ratio...

BACKGROUND: Sleep disturbances are common in individuals with Multiple Sclerosis (MS), but the impact of poor sleep quality on cognitive and physical function in individuals with MS is less clear. OBJECTIVE/HYPOTHESIS: The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between sleep quality and cognitive and physical function in individuals with mild MS. METHODS: Forty individuals with relapsing-remitting or secondary-progressive MS (50...

BACKGROUND: Chronic conditions are among the major causes of work disability (WD), which is associated with lower employment, less economic activity, and greater dependence on social programs, while limiting access to the benefits of employment participation. OBJECTIVE/HYPOTHESIS: We estimated the overall prevalence of WD among working-age (18-64 years) U.S. adults and the most common causes of WD overall and by sex. Next, we estimated the prevalence and most common causes of WD among adults with 12 common chronic conditions by sex and age...

BACKGROUND: There has been a growing interest in disability and poverty on the international research and policy stages. Poverty assessments for persons with disabilities may be affected by the experience of extra costs associated with a disability. OBJECTIVE: This article provides a systematized review of the global literature on the direct costs associated with living with a disability at the individual or household level. METHODS: We searched three databases for peer-reviewed journal articles that estimated extra costs associated with disability: Econlit, SocIndex and PubMed...

BACKGROUND: Individuals with multiple sclerosis (MS) report fatigue, pain, depression, cognitive difficulties, and other symptoms. It is often difficult to compare symptoms across studies and populations because scales used to measure individual symptoms or quality of life indicators (QOLI) use different metrics and often do not provide norms. PROMIS and Neuro-QOL measures, developed with modern psychometric methods, use a common metric and provide population norms. OBJECTIVE: To create symptom profiles and compare symptoms and QOLIs of people living with MS to a US general population sample...

BACKGROUND: The Affordable Care Act (ACA) has many provisions that could improve health care for people with disabilities, including Medicaid expansion and the ability to purchase qualified health plans (QHPs). OBJECTIVE: To explore how ACA provisions affected people with disabilities' health care experiences during the first enrollment period and to suggest hypotheses for future research. METHOD: We conducted semi-structured interviews with disability community leaders (N = 16) from a maximum variation sample of 10 U...

Allysha C Maragh-Bass, Joan M Griffin, Sean Phelan, Lila J Finney Rutten, Megan A Morris
BACKGROUND: Recent healthcare mandates require availability of accessible medical exam equipment, which may reduce barriers to care for patients with disabilities (PWD). However, more research is needed to explore healthcare provider views on implementation and routine use of accessible equipment. OBJECTIVE: This study qualitatively explored healthcare provider perceptions of: (1) daily use of accessible medical examination tables with PWD; and (2) recommendations for addressing challenges to using this equipment...

Jooyeon Jin, Joonkoo Yun, Stamatis Agiovlasitis
BACKGROUND: Enjoyment in school-based physical activity (PA) programs, such as recess or physical education may be important for promoting children's health, but there is a lack of evidence explaining how enjoyment affects health in children with disabilities. HYPOTHESES: Enjoyment in school-based PA programs will positively influence general health through participating in more daily PA, and this relationship will vary between younger and older children with disabilities...

BACKGROUND: Experiences of discrimination lead people from vulnerable groups to avoid medical healthcare. It is yet to be known if such experiences affect people with disabilities (PWD) in the same manner. OBJECTIVES: To determine the association between perceived discrimination and healthcare-seeking behavior in people with disabilities and to explore differences of this association across disability types. METHODS: We performed a cross-sectional study with data from a national survey of people with disabilities...
