American Heart Association says Kids with heart defects face Learning Challenges, Inadequate School Support

 

American Heart Association Rapid Access Journal Report

American Heart AssociationDallas, TX – Children with all types of congenital heart defects face learning challenges in elementary school, but many may not be receiving adequate education assistance, according to a new study in Circulation: Cardiovascular Quality and Outcomes, an American Heart Association journal.

Using North Carolina education records, birth defect registries and birth certificates, the new research examined whether congenital heart defects were associated with low scores on standard reading and math tests given at the end of third grade. The research included 2,807 children born with heart defects, and 6,355 without, who completed third grade in public school between 2006 to 2012.

Children with congenital heart defects are less likely to meet minimum standards in third-grade reading and math end-of-year testing than peers. (American Heart Association)
