Details

In this book, we review abuse and neglect among children with disabilities and highlight the importance of identifying abuse and neglect in this vulnerable population. Child maltreatment has many detrimental consequences, and in the absence of a professional response, further victimization, lifelong complications and possibly early death may occur. Disability and maltreatment are defined and addressed internationally. Patterns of victimization presentation are discussed and suggestions are given to aid in recognition, assessment and treatment. Developmental considerations in the evaluation and treatment are reviewed, as are special situations with siblings and neglect of special medical needs. We conclude with a discussion of prevention and provide recommendations to improve our understanding of how to best identify child maltreatment and to improve practice among children with disabilities, so that they may maximize their developmental and intellectual potentials.
