An exploratory study was undertaken to identify common factors in the transition to adolescence among three groups of children with chronic disorders (narcolepsy, epilepsy and attention deficit disorder). Each group had 15 subjects, from 11 to 18 years old; a normal comparison group was also obtained. Subjects and parents filled out questionnaires developed to obtain information on sleep and eating habits, early development, and current school and social adjustment. Children completed a shortened form of the Offer Self-Image Questionnaire for adolescents. Interviews were held with each child and one parent (usually the mother) to explore developmental history, disease history and issues in adjustment to adolescence. Difficulties in leading a normal teenage life while managing a disorder requiring both medication and constant monitoring were a special focus for the chronic disorders groups. Additional implications for nursing practice include relating sleep habits to health status, life events and social functioning.
