Study Suggests Children With Developmental Disabilities More Likely to Develop Asthma

What Happened: Children with developmental disabilities are more than twice as likely as other kids to have asthma, according to a new study from public health researchers at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston and published in JAMA Network Open.

About 16% of children with a disability have asthma. Six percent of children without disabilities have the condition. The relationship between disability and asthma remains unclear.

Both asthma and disabilities in children are important determinants of school absenteeism, with the subsequent risk of educational delays.
