Follow-Up Study of Children With Developmental Disabilities (0920-0436)—Revision—National Center for Environmental Health (NCEH). In the mid-1980s, a number of 10-year-old children were identified as having one or more of five developmental disabilities: mental retardation, cerebral palsy, epilepsy, hearing impairment, or vision impairment. These children were identified (mainly from special education records in the public schools) in the metro-Atlanta area as part of a study to develop surveillance methods for these conditions in school-age children. A follow-up study was initiated to trace, locate and interview these children, who are now in their early twenties, to assess their status with regard to educational attainment, employment, living arrangements, services received, functional limitations, adaptive behavior, social participation, health, and quality of life.
This study proposes to continue with the one-time, in-person interview and includes a contemporaneous comparison group of persons who, at age 10 years, were in regular education classes in the same schools as were the persons with developmental disabilities. The data generated from this study will continue to be used to estimate the burden of secondary health conditions, limited social participation, and economic disadvantage among young adults with long-standing, developmental impairments. This request is for a one-year renewal of the currently-approved study. The total annual burden hours are 1,093.
