Abstract

Introduction: In every society, the health of children and adolescents is of particular importance and their mental health helps them to be healthy and physically healthy and play their social role better. Therefore, this study was conducted to determine the prevalence of behavioral disorders and its related factors in elementary school children in Ilam city in the years 2011-2012. Materials and Method: This cross-sectional study was performed on all children aged 12-6 years old in primary and non-profit primary schools in Ilam, among which 400 children were selected by cluster sampling method. The DSM-IV questionnaire and other demographic information questionnaire were used for research. Data were then analyzed using SPSS-20. Results: In this study, 161 (53) of the samples were male and 143 (47) were female. Among the five disorders studied in this study, 27 (8.8) with disorder 1 (attention deficit / hyperactivity disorder type), 20 (6.5) with disorder 2 (hyperactivity disorder) / Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder), 13 (4.2) with impaired number 3 (hypoactivity / attention deficit deficiency), 78 (25.6) were suffering from disorder 4 (coping disorder) and 3 (0.98) had impaired 5 (conduct disorder) Which had the highest disability score of 4 and the least was related to disorder number 5. Conclusion: Considering that the prevalence of coping disorder in this study was more than other types of disorders, Therefore, the necessity of screening in school age children, as well as causation by conducting further studies and providing educational and counseling services to children and parents, seems necessary. © 2018, Indian Journal of Forensic Medicine and Toxicology.
