Educational Improvement Center-South, Sewell, NJ.
A survey sent to parents of 1,189 students in grades 1 through 8 in three school districts explored the connection between family history of diabetes mellitus and learning or behavior problems. A yield of 816 returns gave results such as the following: of 418 returns for males, 233 students had a diabetic background (BG); of 398 returns for females, 211 students had a diabetic BG; 145 males and 60 females with diabetic BG had school related problems; and although more females had a diabetic BG than males, more males had a history of school related problems than females. The results indicated that there may be a connection between family history of diabetes and learning problems. The report contains numerous tables and statistics. (MC)
