Abstract [en]

There are few studies on substance use, mental symptoms and school problems in adolescents with multi-disabilities. This survey, “Life and health-young 2005”, included all children in mainstream schools class 9 in the county of Örebro, Sweden. Children attending special schools for deaf/hard-of-hearing and multi-disabled children were not included. There were 56 (1.9%) hard-of-hearing students with some other disability, 93 (3.1%) ‘just hard-of-hearing’ students, 282 (9.7%) students with some other disability than hearing impairment and 2488 (85.2%) without a disability. Hard-of-hearing/other disability group of students reported considerably higher scores on mental symptoms, substance use and school problems than the others. A logistic regression analysis showed that mental symptoms explained 17% of the variance, alcohol and drugs 15% and school problems 9%. The final model explained 24% and included use of illegal drugs (OR 8.3), often irritated (OR 4.2), feeling bad (OR 3.2) and bullied (OR 2.2). In the hard-of-hearing/other disability group 43% reported at least 2 of these symptoms and in the other groups 17%, 18% and 8%, respectively. The combination of hearing impairment and other disabilities increases the risk for mental symptoms, substance use and school problems. This group of students in mainstream schools ought to be an important target for preventive efforts.
