  • Appropriate Screen Time Use to Prevent Speech and Language Delay in
           Toddlers during the Covid-19 Pandemic: a Brief Report

    • Abstract: With the COVID-19 lockdown and other limitations, screen time has increased for everyone, even young children. Children's screen use has a deleterious influence on a variety of cognitive functions, including language delay. Various Paediatrics organizations have noticed these harmful impacts, and suggestions for parents were released to limit screen usage. These agencies have provided suggestions on the duration of screen usage for specific age groups. This study tries to address screen time from a qualitative standpoint. Suggestions for successful ways to participate in screen time are presented. Interactive screen time, including co-viewing and enough language engagement, may assist to mitigate the negative effects of screen time on language development. The screen has its own restrictions and several severe repercussions if they are exceeded. As a result, wherever feasible, screen time should be avoided, and language-rich quality time with children should be prioritized. Published on 2022-02-01 00:44:04
  • Implementation of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons
           with Disabilities in Africa: a Scoping Review

    • Abstract: Aim: The UNCRPD is an international treaty that promotes the advancement of the rights of persons with disabilities. This scoping review aimed to map the evidence on strategies employed by countries in implementing the UNCRPD in Africa and the implementation challenges faced.Method: The PRISMA extension for scoping reviews (PRISMA-Scr) was used in this study. Key terms pertinent to the implementation of the UNCRPD in Africa were used to search for literature. Strict eligibility criteria were set and a qualitative data extraction template developed. Two reviewers worked independently to extract and chart data into data extraction forms. An analysis of country reports was also conducted to identify relationships between the African country reports and findings from the studies included in the scoping review.  Inductive reasoning enabled the generation of themes. A total of 107 sources were initially retrieved and after a process of screening and exclusion, 31 sources (11 research papers and 20 country reports) were included for inductive analysis.Results: The study revealed evidence of implementation of UNCRPD in Africa, albeit limited, especially to the area of education, and employment. However, there are unique contextual limitations in implementation of UNCRPD in Africa. The country reports reflected similar implementation issues to those identified in studies selected for this paper.Conclusion and Implications: This calls for African governments to broaden focus on implementation of other articles of the UNCRPD in order to create inclusive societies.

  • CBR Practice and Inclusion: Persons with Disabilities in North East India

    • Abstract: In third world countries, Community-based rehabilitation (CBR) was advocated as a core strategy in the 1970s-80s for improvement of the quality of life of persons with disabilities by providing facilities for rehabilitation to persons with disabilities at the community level. This paper explores the long-term impact of CBR programmes undertaken in the North East region of India, in order understand the ways in which targeted interventions led to changes in the lives of persons with disabilities and their families, to discern the extent of their inclusion within communities and any systemic changes brought about towards accessing their human rights. The paper will attempt to reveal how, as a result of CBR initiatives, persons with disabilities, their families and the communities that they live in, experience a quality change in their everyday lives, enjoy better access to an entire range of rights and entitlements and the ways in which such initiatives sustain, even after the exit of a structured CBR programme.

  • Extra-Institutional Factors Limiting Access to Rehabilitation Services for
           Children with Cerebral Palsy: Perspectives of Caregivers in Marsabit
           County, Kenya

    • Abstract: Purpose: This paper explored the factors limiting access to and use of hospital-based rehabilitation services for children with cerebral palsy in Marsabit County, Kenya. The factors were unrelated to healthcare institutions providing the services and the focus was on the perspectives of caregivers of children with cerebral palsy.Method: A qualitative study was conducted with a total of 18 participants who were selected by purposive sampling. Semi-structured interviews were used to collect data from the participants. Data was analysed using Erlingsson and Brysiewicz’s approach to content analysis.Results: The major barriers for the caregivers were belief systems, lack of awareness of rehabilitation services, no support at home, transport problems, and cost of transport.Conclusion and Implications: Access to rehabilitation services for caregivers of children with cerebral palsy appear to be limited. Health policymakers, service providers and other stakeholders should ramp up their efforts to improve access to these services and make them affordable as well. Efforts at improving access could be supported by information and awareness-creation among caregivers about the importance of rehabilitation services for children with cerebral palsy.

  • The Effectiveness of Community-Based Interventions in Improving Activities
           of Daily Living and Quality of Life Outcomes in Persons Living with
           Stroke: a Systematic Review

    • Abstract: Purpose: Despite the growth of literature regarding community-based interventions (CBI) in low- to middle-income and high-income countries, its effectiveness in improving outcomes related to activities of daily living (ADL) and quality of life (QOL) in people with stroke is inconclusive. This systematic review compared the effectiveness of community-based interventions with the usual or hospital-based treatments in improving ADL and QOL outcomes in this population.Method: Four databases were systematically searched from inception until December 31, 2020, for relevant experimental studies from high-income and low- to middle-income countries that compared CBI with the usual/hospital rehabilitation on outcomes related to ADLs and QOL in clients with stroke.Results: All the 10 experimental studies that were included came from high-income countries (Italy, United Kingdom, South Korea, Canada, and Australia), involving 1575 participants (806 males, 656 females, 113 not classified) with age range from 22-103 years. Seven articles measured ADL performance, and 10 measured QOL. Results indicated that CBI generally demonstrates improvement in ADL and QOL values similar to usual or hospital-based care. There was wide variability in the interventions described and the outcome measures used for both groups. Risk of bias assessment revealed issues with randomisation, blinding and follow-up. Stroke-specific baseline characteristics such as length of time since diagnosis and laterality varied considerably in all of the studies.Conclusion and Limitations: CBI did not demonstrate significant difference in improving ADL and QOL outcomes for people with stroke compared to usual care, possibly due to the high quality of rehabilitation services existing in the countries where the studies took place. There is a need to use standardised outcome measures and interventions to ascertain these outcomes. Published on 2022-02-01 00:33:32
  • Emoticons as Self-Disclosure in Social Media and Its Meaning for People
           Who are Deaf

    • Abstract: Purpose: The limitations in communication for people who are deaf or unable to speak are evident. Like other people with disabilities, they too seek to acquire knowledge, search for information and understand its content, but there are barriers to self-expression and self-disclosure. This study provides insights into opportunities for people who are deaf, yet are able to access digital communication technology. It analyses their use of social media and emoticons for messages and communication. Online interaction enables self-disclosure to other people with deafness, as well as to people without disabilities.Method: The study used a qualitative approach with a phenomenological design. The interpretation of data was carried out with informants from the deaf community in Indonesia, who use social media applications and various types of emoticons for self-disclosure on WhatsApp and Facebook. Selection of various emoticons took place through in-depth interviews, observations, and analysis of the conversations among themselves as well as people without disabilities.Results: The findings show that the motives for using social media, emoticons, and communication technology are to build online interactions and enable self-disclosure among people who are deaf. The use of emoticons in social media helps people who are deaf to express their feelings towards others, to communicate with their families and build intimate interpersonal relationships, making it easier to get along in their community. The ability to interact and understand social media content and communication technology, in general, depends on their experience and ability to master and give meaning to signs, words, emoticons, and language.Conclusion: People with hearing impairment have had significant benefits from using social media and communication technology. Access to information and knowledge about the personal lives of individuals and their communities, through social media, has added cohesiveness within the community of people who are deaf. By using various emoticons, people with hearing impairment can apply signs, words, and symbols to express emotions and feelings. This makes the meaning of a sentence or interaction between individuals more robust and precise, creates stronger messages, and at the same time can be a medium for self-disclosure. However, due to difficulty in distinguishing between messages on social media that may be true or false, people who are deaf tend to feel at times uncertain and confused.

  • International Continuing Education for Rehabilitation Workers in Honduras:
           a Pre-test Post-test Evaluation

    • Abstract: Background: The knowledge of Honduran healthcare workers who deliver rehabilitation services can be enhanced by support from community-engaged academic collaborations outside the country.Objective: This study aimed to evaluate reactions and learning linked to two continuing education workshops for rehabilitation workers in northern Honduras.Method: A pre-test post-test study design was used. In September 2017, faculty from Canada and Colombia, together with health professionals from Honduras, facilitated two neurorehabilitation workshops - one in a rehabilitation centre and the other in a family support organisation located in northern Honduras. The participants were physiotherapists, physicians, nurses and educational professionals, as well as a psychologist, kinesiologist, and non-professionals trained onsite. Seventeen participants attended the ‘Acquired brain injury/spinal cord injury workshop’ (adult workshop), and 15 attended the ‘Rehabilitation for children with impaired neuromotor development workshop’ (paediatric workshop). They completed three questionnaires before the workshops: one on sociodemographic information; one related to knowledge; and, the Modified Stages of Learning Questionnaires (MSLQs). Three questionnaires were completed after the workshops: the Modified Kirkpatrick; a knowledge questionnaire; and, the MSLQ.Results: Most of the participants agreed that the workshops had positive effects in two of the four Kirkpatrick levels that were evaluated: reaction and learning. In the MSLQs of the paediatric workshop, there was a statistically significant change in the percentage of participants who moved from scanning/evaluation stages in the pre-test to learning/gaining experience in the post-test, in three of the six topics. Three of the knowledge questions showed important learning effects.Conclusion and Implications: Workshops offered through an international collaboration resulted in enhancing learning and knowledge of neurological rehabilitation workers in Honduras.  This initiative has the potential to improve the quality of care for people with neurological conditions in the region. Participants evaluated the workshops as relevant and held very positive attitudes about the perceived outcomes. The inclusion of local practitioners in planning the workshops and selecting the topics appeared to have aided their relevance. It is recommended that workshop planners take adequate time to ensure relevancy. Published on 2022-02-01 00:29:37
