Impact Jongeren School Knight 2018 - 1481

 

 

 

 

Knight:

ME/CVS heeft

een grote impact op

het functioneren op school

(absentie, prestaties etc.)

 

 

 

 


 

 

 

 

Terwijl gezonde jongeren gemiddeld een halve dag per week ziek zijn,

missen kinderen met 'ME/CVS' gemiddeld 40% van hun lessen op school.

 

Daarnaast raken jongeren met ME/CVS vaak ook het 'contact met school' (geheel) kwijt.

 

De verminderde schoolpresentie was niet gerelateerd aan emotionele problemen (!), maar emotionele

 problemen hielden wel verband met de kwaliteit van leven en het verminderde 'contact met school'.

 

Verassend genoeg scoorden de intelligentie van jongeren met ME/CVS bovengemiddeld, maar

gelet op het intelligentieniveau waren de schoolprestaties van de jongeren beduidend minder.

 

In 2015 toonden onderzoekers van het NKCV ook al aan dat ME/CVS

een grote negatieve invloed op het IQ en de schoolprestaties heeft (klik hier).

 

Uit onderzoek van het NKCV blijkt ook dat CGT/GET geen effect heeft op cognitieve test-scores!

Alleen al vanuit educatief, emotioneel en sociaal perspectief is CBT/GET volstrekt ineffectief.

Background:

 

It is well known that

adolescents with chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS)

experience greater school absenteeism

compared to healthy adolescents.

 

Less is known about other important aspects of school functioning

including school participation, school connectedness, and academic performance

in students with CFS.

 

The aim of this study was

to compare school functioning as a multifaceted construct

in adolescents with CFS to healthy adolescent peers.

 

We also explored

whether illness factors were associated with school functioning in adolescents with CFS.

 

 

Methods:

 

Thirty-nine participants with CFS and

228 healthy controls (aged 1317 years)

completed a range of subjective and objective measures of

school functioning, as well as measures of fatigue and emotional symptoms.

 

 

Results:

 

Adolescents with CFS demonstrated significantly higher rates of school absence,

as well as poorer school-related quality of life, reduced school participation,

poorer connectedness with school, and reduced academic performance.

 

Fatigue severity and emotional symptoms

were significantly associated with most aspects of school function.

 

 

Conclusions:

 

Adolescents with CFS are at increased risk for poor school functioning

across a range of indicators which extend beyond school absenteeism.

 

 

Keywords:
