General hospital care for children with learning disabilities has scope for improvement General hospital care for children with learning disabilities has scope for improvement Discover Portal Discover Portal General hospital care for children with learning disabilities has scope for improvement Published on 18 September 2018 doi: Less than half of NHS staff surveyed said they were routinely informed that a child has learning disabilities through a dedicated flagging system on admission. Many (...) general hospital staff lack confidence and organisational support in providing care for children and young people with learning disabilities. In an NIHR national hospital staff-awareness survey, staff were uncertain or unaware of local policy and practice. Only half of the children’s hospitals had a learning disability nurse, and where they did exist, there was disparity in the status and importance attributed to the role. This is likely to prevent the needs of these children being fully met

Regarding education, the affirmative action in favour of learners with disabilities has not translated (...) into actual learning opportunities due to personal and environmental barriers.The study on which this article is based investigated the non-formal and informal adult learning practices regarding microfinance that persons with disabilities engaged in.

Machine Learning to Improve Energy Expenditure Estimation in Children With Disabilities: A Pilot Study in Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy Children with physical impairments are at a greater risk for obesity and decreased physical activity. A better understanding of physical activity pattern and energy expenditure (EE) would lead to a more targeted approach to intervention.This study focuses on studying the use of machine-learning algorithms for EE estimation in children with disabilities. A pilot (...) in children with disabilities (14%-40%). The proposed model for boys with DMD uses ensemble machine learning techniques and gives a 91% correlation with actual measured EE values (root mean square error of 0.017).Our results confirm that the methods developed to determine EE using accelerometer and heart rate sensor values in normal adults are not appropriate for children with disabilities and should not be used. A much more accurate model is obtained using machine-learning-based nonlinear regression
