Abstract

Evaluation of school reentry programs are rarely reported, and statements of the value of reentry programs are usually based on anecdotal information. No known reports of empiric data support claims of positive benefit for burned children. This article reports a multifaceted effort to evaluate the effectiveness of one reentry program involving three approaches: (1) questionnaire answered by the school contact person after reentry program, (2) interviews with a random sample of patients (n = 58) and parents (n = 44) 1 to 5 years after burn, and (3) assessment of patients' behavior problems by teachers on a standardized behavior checklist comparing 10 patients who had a school reentry program involving videos to introduce them to their classmates with 10 patients who were matched for age, sex, and total body surface area burned and had no reentry program beyond phone contact. Results indicate that school reentry programs are popular with teachers and parents. This pilot effort involving empiric data failed to demonstrate a positive effect on the adjustment of the child.
