Prevalence and health impact of developmental disabilities in US children.
Data from the 1988 National Health Interview Survey-Child Health Supplement were used to examine the prevalence of selected developmental disabilities and their impact among children ages 0 through 17 years.
The following conditions, identified through a structured in-person interview with a parent or other adult household member, were examined: deafness or trouble hearing, blindness, epilepsy or seizures, stammering and stuttering, other speech defects, cerebral palsy, delay in growth or development, learning disabilities, and emotional or behavioral problems.
The impact was defined by measures of perceived health status, school performance and attendance, and health care utilization.
