Abstract Students with Down syndrome (DS) receive school-based physical therapy (SBPT), however little data exists regarding services and outcomes. Using a prospective observational cohort study our aim was to explore SBPT activities and interventions, and students' goal achievement of 46 students with DS, tracked by 17 physical therapists (PTs). PTs provided on average 24.0 min/week direct service and 11.6 min/week services on behalf of the student. The most frequent activities employed were physical education/recreation, mobility, and sitting/standing/transitions. The most frequent interventions implem...

Abstract Genes and environmental stimuli cooperate in the regulation of brain development and formation of the adult neuronal architecture. Genetic alterations or exposure to perturbing environmental conditions, therefore, can lead to altered neural processes associated with neurodevelopmental disorders and brain disabilities. In this context, environmental enrichment emerged as a promising and noninvasive experimental treatment for favoring recovery of cognitive and sensory functions in different neurodevelopmental disorders. The aim of this review is to depict, mainly through the much explicative examples of amb...

Authors: Kubota M Abstract Recent evidence suggests that hyperuricemia is an important condition in children and adolescents, particularly in association with noncommunicable diseases. This review aims to summarize our current understanding of this condition in pediatric patients. An analysis of serum uric acid reference values in a healthy population indicates that they increase gradually with age until adolescence, with differences between the sexes arising at about 12 years of age. This information should be taken into consideration when defining hyperuricemia in studies. Gout is extremely rare in childre...

Background: Various ocular anomalies are present in the vast majority of individuals with Down syndrome; however, we know little about optic nerve abnormalities. The aim of this cross-sectional comparative study was to describe optic disc morphology in patients with Down syndrome and to determine if the differences found are potentially related to visual acuity. Subjects/methods: Assessable fundus images were obtained in 50 children with Down syndrome and 52 children without Down syndrome. Morphological analysis of the optic nerve was performed, including the disc-to-macula distance (DM) to disc diameter (DD) ratio (DM...

Among children with Down syndrome, the frequency of motor rehabilitation intervention and the age at the start of this intervention are independently related to the age at onset of independent walking. Early motor rehabilitation, before age 6  months, may be effective in reducing motor delay in children with Down syndrome.
