Abstract:


Objective:

To examine educational achievement and vocational success of children with SCI.

Design:

Surveys administered to students and teachers, and content analysis of school records.

Setting:

Regional pediatric rehabilitation program.

Participants:

Participants were selected from 144 children with SCI treated from 1979 through 1992; 98 met inclusion criteria of onset of SCI before the age of 18 years, older than 3 years, residual paresis, and no cognitive impairment; 29% were lost to follow-up, and 53 of the 70 contacted were enrolled.

Main outcome measures:

School completion rates, absenteeism, grades, ratings of participation; education and living situations after high school; history of paid employment.

Results:

The 53 responders were: 33 boys, 20 girls; 25 with paraplegia (47%), 28 with tetraplegia (53%); mean length of disability = 9. 4 years; 12 primary students (23%), 19 secondary students (36%), and 22 postsecondary participants (41%). Students and teachers rated student participation and performance as average or above compared to peers; 84% of secondary students planned to attend college after graduation. Only 33% of high school students over age 15 had been employed. Ninety-one percent of postsecondary subjects had graduated from high school. Seven (32%) had graduated from college or a vocational program, 11 (50%) were enrolled in college full- or part-time, and 4 others (18%) were neither in school nor employed. Current employment rates were 71% of college graduates, 36% of those in college, and 0% of those who had never enrolled. Level of SCI was not related to employment.

Conclusions:

Students with SCI demonstrate adequate participation and performance in educational settings, but may benefit from more vocational counseling and
opportunities for paid employment.
