  • Characteristic of COVID-19 infection in pediatric patients: early findings from two Italian Pediatric Research Networks. [Journal Article]
    Eur J Pediatr. 2020 Jun 03 [Online ahead of print]Parri N, Magistà AM, … CONFIDENCE and COVID-19 Italian Pediatric Study Networks
  • CONCLUSIONS: This descriptive case series of children with COVID-19, mostly encompassing of cases enrolled at hospital level, suggest that COVID-19 may have a non-negligible rate of severe presentations in selected pediatric populations with a relatively high rates of comorbidities. More studies are needed to further understand the presentation and outcomes of children with COVID-19 in children with special needs.What is Known:• There is limited evidence on the clinical presentation and outcomes of children with COVID-19 in Europe, and almost no evidence on characteristics and risk factors of severe cases.What is New:• Among a case series of 130 children, mostly diagnosed at hospital level, and with a relatively high rate (26.2%) of comorbidities, about three-quarter had an asymptomatic or mild disease.• However, 57.7% were hospitalized, 11.5% needed some respiratory support, and 6.9% were treated in an intensive care unit.
  • Towards Integrated Youth Care: A Systematic Review of Facilitators and Barriers for Professionals. [Journal Article]
    Adm Policy Ment Health. 2020 May 18 [Online ahead of print]Nooteboom LA, Mulder EA, … Vermeiren RRJM
  • To overcome fragmentation in support for children and their families with multiple and enduring problems across life domains, professionals increasingly try to organize integrated care. However, it is unclear what facilitators and barriers professionals experience when providing this integrated care. Our systematic review, including 55 studies from a broad variety of settings in Youth Care, showe…
  • An integrated approach to meet the needs of high-vulnerable families: a qualitative study on integrated care from a professional perspective. [Journal Article]
    Child Adolesc Psychiatry Ment Health. 2020; 14:18.Nooteboom LA, van den Driesschen SI, … Mulder EA
  • CONCLUSIONS: Professionals emphasized the need for flexible support across several life domains to meet the needs of high-vulnerable families. Also, there should be a balance between the use of guidelines and a professional's autonomy to tailor support to families' needs. Other recommendations include the need to improve professionals' ability in timely stepping up to more intensive care and scaling down to less restrictive support, and to further our insight in risk factors and needs of these families.
  • Epidemiological Profile of Health and Behaviors in Middle Childhood. [Journal Article]
    Pediatrics. 2020 Jun; 145(6)Parasuraman SR, Ghandour RM, Kogan MD
  • CONCLUSIONS: The middle-childhood population is generally healthy, yet several patterns observed with respect to age and sex indicate a need to examine the emergence and progression of select health-risk behaviors. In this study, we highlight opportunities to implement targeted interventions at earlier ages and different points along the life course.
  • The effect of women, infant, and children (WIC) services on birth weight before and during the 2007-2009 great recession in Washington state and Florida: a pooled cross-sectional time series analysis. [Journal Article]
    BMC Pregnancy Childbirth. 2020 Apr 28; 20(1):252.Blakeney EL, Herting JR, … Bekemeier B
  • CONCLUSIONS: This paper supports previous research linking maternal utilization of WIC services during pregnancy to improved birth weight (both reducing LBW and increasing infant birth weight in grams) among some high-disadvantage groups. WIC appears to have been beneficial at decreasing disparity gaps in infant birth weight among the very young, Black, and late/no prenatal care enrollees in this high-need population, both before and during the Great Recession. Gaps are still present among other social and demographic characteristic groups (e.g., for unmarried mothers) for whom we did not find WIC to be associated with any detectable value in promoting better birth weight outcomes. Future research needs to examine how WIC (and/or other maternal and child health programs) could be made to work better and reach farther to address persistent disparities in birth weight outcomes. Additionally, in preparation for future economic downturns it will be important to determine how to preserve and, if possible, expand WIC services during times of increased need.
  • Predictors of Leisure Participation in 6 to 14-Year-Old Children with Cerebral Palsy: Structural Equation Modeling. [Journal Article]
    Iran J Child Neurol. 2020 Spring; 14(2):41-57.Ghaffari S, Kalantari M, … Akbarzadeh Baghban A
  • CONCLUSIONS: The intensity of CP children's participation is influenced by child, family and environmental factors. Parents' knowledge of recreational activities and their preference to participate in leisure and recreational activities provide children more opportunities to participate. Higher gross motor function, manual ability, and communication function also play an important role in their participation. Family structure means family cohesion, roles organization, and conflicts between family members and encountering physical, attitudinal and structural barriers at home and community indirectly impact children's participation pattern. To enhance children's participation, we suggest therapists to support children's behaviors, family relationships and involvement in community activities and optimize physical function of children with limitations in self-mobility.
  • The Michigan infant mental health home visiting model. [Journal Article]
    Infant Ment Health J. 2020 03; 41(2):166-177.Weatherston DJ, Ribaudo J, Michigan Collaborative for Infant Mental Health Research
  • Selma Fraiberg's pioneering work with infants, toddlers, and families over 40 years ago led to the development of a field in which professionals from multiple disciplines learned to work with or on behalf of infants, very young children, their parents, and the relationships that bind them together. The intent was to promote social and emotional health through enhancing the security of early devel…
