This session addresses the experience of having a long-term condition and disability during adolescence.

 

Learning Objectives

By the end of this session you will be able to:

  • Demonstrate an understanding of the experience of having a long-term condition and disability by young people and their families
  • Describe the interrelated impacts of having a long-term condition and disability on adolescent development
  • Demonstrate an understanding of the impact of cognitive impairment during adolescence

 

There is increasing recognition of the prevalence of long-term conditions and disability during adolescence. 23% of 11-15 year olds report that they have a long-term illness or disability. This proportion is increasing with medical advances in therapeutic intervention and technology.

The great majority of these challenges for young people and their families are common across all long-term conditions and disabilities albeit with different potential consequences. Because of this we have taken a generic approach to the issues that young people and their families face in this session.
