Abstract

Little is known about health limitations and service utilization among the Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander (NHPI) children with developmental disabilities (DDs) due to limited data. Our study examined the prevalence of DDs, health limitations, services used, and the unmet needs of NHPI children aged 3 to 17 years using cross-sectional data from the 2014 NHPI National Health Interview Survey. Results showed that prevalence of DDs among NHPI children was lower than American children of other races. DDs were negatively associated with health and functioning of NHPI children. There is a need to promote understanding of DDs among NHPI families and to inform public policy makers to identify appropriate intervention services for NHPI children.
