Publication Detail
The Role of Family Functioning in the Development of Executive Functions in Preschool Children with Sickle Cell Anemia
Abstract
© 2019, © 2019 Taylor & Francis Group, LLC. Executive functions are compromised in children with sickle cell anemia. There is limited research on the development of executive functions in preschool children with sickle cell anemia and the factors that contribute to executive dysfunction. We looked at the relation between biomedical and environmental factors, including family functioning and socioeconomic status, and executive functions in 22 preschool children with sickle cell anemia. We found that family functioning was the strongest predictor of executive outcomes in young children with sickle cell anemia with no evidence for an influence of disease severity at this early stage.
