Assessment of Educational and Health Needs for Children and Youth with Disabilities Identified as Affected by Agent Orange/Dioxin
In Vietnam, CRS conducted this initial survey research on the needs for education and health care among children and youth with disabilities who are identified as affected by Agent Orange/dioxin. This report finds that children identified as dioxin-affected have the same types of disabilities as other children, but with higher severity and rates of many types of impairments. Approximately 50% of children surveyed attend mainstream schools, while the remainder stays at home, never pursuing an education.
