Problems of Children of School Age (10-13 Years). Report on a Working Group.
A working group on children's problems was convened in Moscow from November 30 to December 3, 1976 by the World Health Organization (WHO) Regional Office for Europe. The meeting was attended by 16 temporary advisors of Eastern and Western Europe and WHO headquarters. This report reflects the work of this group. The report considers all the problems of children aged 10-13 and all services provided for them--in school and out of school. The purpose of the conference was to get an overview by identifying the problem areas as well as overlaps, gaps and deficiencies in services. The report: (1) describes the characteristics of children of this age group; (2) presents the biological, psychological and social problems of these children along with possible solutions; and (3) presents an overview of solutions, from which common principles emerge, together with the conclusions and recommendations of the Working Group.
