Abstract:
Whilst the prevalence of childhood obesity within the UK continues to rise, it is believed that children with learning or physical disabilities (resulting in the acquisition of a statement of special educational needs) may have a higher risk of becoming obese. This elevated risk may be due to possible genetic or metabolic complications related to a particular disorder, or practical issues related to inappropriate eating and/or levels of physical activity. As obesity confers an additional health risk in children with disabilities, the Royal College of Physicians recommended this group as a health priority. However, despite this, there remains a lack of representative data for this population, with only two recent published studies examining the prevalence of obesity in children with disabilities.
