For disabled children, particular issues arise that are rarely dealt with in the literature on abuse. This important handbook provides an examination of the specific vulnerabilities of disabled children to all types of abuse; a look at the social, economic, and political reasons why disabled children are not better protected; effective strategies to reduce the risk of abuse; ways of communicating with children to help prevent abuse; clear guidance on how to recognize and assess signs and indicators of abuse; information on the pros and cons of medical intervention; and strategies for creating the best possible context for recovery from abuse. This is essential reading for all parents of disabled children, as well as the professionals who work with them.
