The study was conducted on a cohort of 1100 children of school age of younger, middle and senior schools’ classes of Kyiv and Lutsk cities. Features of the impact of the family on the formation of the health of the child were studied by determining the formation of groups of dominant psychotypes, in particular: acceptance – alienation of the child in the family, establishing the nature of the social desire of the child in the family, realization of the state of increased care of the family relative to the child, authoritarian style of communication of the family with the child and degrading the individual characteristics of the child's personality. As a result of the study, a special importance of the effect of hyperopic on the formation of digestive system diseases is established. Attention is emphasized that in order to prevent the negative impact of the family on the formation of the health of the child, the joint efforts of doctors, psychologists and educators are needed through the creation of joint projects for the prevention and rehabilitation for each child. The current version of the design and modular system "Universal- on-line" is presented. The system provides an effective cooperation between teachers, psychologists and doctors in an interactive mode. After diagnostics to determine the nature of the impact of the family on the child, the corresponding specialists will receive an algorithm of action in accordance with their profile. It is emphasized that the consequence of realizing the complex negative influence of the family in the event of late detection can be violations of the child's health and the formation of diseases in the digestive system.
