Abstract [en]

There are few comparative studies on school problems, substance use and mental health in adolescents with and without disabilities attending mainstream school. This survey, “Life and health-young 2005”, included all children in class 9 in Örebro County, Sweden. The group mainly focused in this study is Hard-of-hearing (HH) students with light/moderate hearing loss. There were 56 (1.9%) HH students with multiple disabilities, 93 (3.1%) ‘Just’ HH students, 282 (9.7%) students with some other disability than hearing loss and 2488 (85.2%) with no disability. The group HH with multiple disabilities 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%. ‘Just’ HH adolescents and adolescents with some other disability than hearing loss had higher scores on mental symptoms and school problems than those with no disability but not on substance use. Half of the HH student with multiple disabilities also reported tinnitus often/always during the three last months, 33% in the ‘Just’ HH group, 13% in the other disability group and 5% in the no disability group. In conclusion HH students with multiple disabilities in mainstream schools are an exposed group of students that ought to be an important target for preventive work so they get less marginalised.
