Surviving Serious Childhood Illness Takes Toll Later: Study
Date:3/7/2011

For the study, Maslow's team collected data on 13,236 young adults who took part in the U.S. National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent Health. The researchers compared those with asthma or other chronic illness, such as cancer, diabetes and epilepsy, with people who did not have these conditions.

"We know from day-to-day practice that these kids miss more school, have more difficulty in school and have more difficulty graduating," said Dr. Judith Schaechter, an associate professor of pediatrics and adolescent medicine at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine.

"We know that is related to their chronic illness, because they are absent for hospitalization, doctors' visits or the illness itself," she noted.

In addition, medications can interfere with concentration and make it hard to get work done, added Schaechter, who was not involved with the study.

These children need extra support at home and at school, Schaechter pointed out.

"The message I want to get to parents and schools is: Let's keep our expectations high for children with chronic disease, let's communicate to the kids what our expectat
