Healthcare access and adverse family impact among U.S. children ages 0-5 years by prematurity status.
This study examined healthcare access and adverse family impact among U.S. children aged 0-5 years by prematurity status. A sample of 19,842 U.S. children from the 2016 and 2017 National Survey of Children’s Health was used to identify 242 very low birthweight (VBLW) and 2205 low birthweight and/or preterm (LBW/PTB) children. Adverse family impacts measured were ≥ $1000 in annual out-of-pocket medical costs, having a parent cut back or stop work, parental aggravation, and maternal or paternal health not excellent. Only VBLW children had a significantly higher risk of a parent cut back or stop work, but all premature birth children fared worse than other children in terms of the other adverse family impacts.

The impact of domestic violence exposure on South Asian children in the United States: perspectives of domestic violence agency staff.
The goal of this study was to examine the needs of South Asian children subjected to domestic violence, from the perspective of staff in domestic violence agencies across the U.S. in order to determine if the children required culture-specific resources. Thirty interviews were conducted; participants described factors important to understanding the impact of domestic violence on South Asian children and discussed the development of culturally tailored resources. The findings suggests that framing South Asian children's experiences within the context of interweaving South Asian and American cultural values, with attention focused on how potential culture clashes may impact the way children that process trauma, is important. The authors recommend that further work triangulate these themes between children, parents, and extended family and in collaboration with domestic violence agencies.
