As a parent of a child with disabilities, you know that it’s challenging to trust that your child is being taken care of properly at daycare. It can be devastating to discover that your child was harmed by the very people who were meant to care for them. In our experience, children with disabilities are at a higher risk of mistreatment by adults in their lives.

Alarming Facts About Abuse and Neglect of Children with Disabilities 

In fact, children with disabilities are three to four times more likely to experience abuse and neglect than children without disabilities. Children with disabilities are susceptible to varying forms of abuse.  For example, children with behavior disorders are more likely to face physical abuse, while children with speech and language disorders are at a higher risk of neglect. Regardless of the form of abuse, no mistreatment of a child with disabilities is ever acceptable.
