The main objective of this study is to examine the efficacy of a new psychological intervention, called Back2School, in helping youths with problematic school absenteeism to return to school. Furthermore, the study will examine how well this program fares against the treatment or interventions that are usually given to youths with school absenteeism (treatment as usual or TAU). Based on previous studies we hypothesize that the Back2School intervention will be better at i...
This study will determine the effectiveness of a free before-school physical activity program, BOKS (Build Our Kids' Success), in increasing objectively measured physical activity levels among children in elementary and middle school in 7 schools in Massachusetts.
Unhealthy lifestyles in early childhood are a major global health challenge. These lifestyles often persist from generation to generation and contribute to a vicious cycle of health-related and social problems. We present a study protocol that examines the effectiveness of two novel, integrated healthy school interventions. One is a full intervention called 'The Healthy Primary School of the Future', the other is a partial intervention called 'The Physical Activity School'. The...

The study aims investigate sensory processing disorders and school readiness in pre-school preterm children and the relationship between sensory impairment and school readiness
Beginning school is an important milestone for children. Children's readiness for school involves cognitive, physical, and emotional development. While the majority of children born preterm are able to transition from preschool to kindergarten with little difficulty, some children experience challenges during this time. Factors that negatively influence children's success in kindergarten include their age, socioeconomic status, neurological status and their ability to interpret...
The primary scientific objective of the study entails examining whether perioperative pain neuroscience education (PPNE or 'brain school') is more effective than classical back school in reducing pain and improving pain inhibition in patients undergoing surgery for spinal radiculopathy. A secondary objective implies examining whether PPNE is more effective than classical back school in imparting a behavioural change (i.e. decreasing postoperative healthcare expenditure for lumb...
Few data about the evaluation of consequences of past life with cancer on life quality of children in school reintegration are available in literature. Nevertheless, some of these studies show that the reintegration impairs life quality of these children (school difficulties, conflictual relations with peers…). Our hypothesis is that children with past life with cancer have more chances to have school integration difficulties with a consequent life quality degradation compare...

We are conducting surveys in all schools over three years and providing the intervention in 8 schools in the 2008-2009 school year and in the other 8 schools in the 2011-2012 school year. This is a program we have provided before in middle schools and...

The U.S. sponsors of the survey are the National Institutes of Health and the Hea...
It is well known that insufficient iodine intakes impairs the production of thyroid hormones, essential for cognitive development and healthy growth. Although the World Health Organization (WHO) promotes public health measures for an adequate iodine consumption, it is estimated that one in three school age children remain iodine deficient worldwide. Whereas there is no mandatory iodisation programs in Portugal, young infants are among the most vulnerable to iodine deficiency d...
