Resumen

BERASTEGUI PEDRO-VIEJO, Ana  y  GOMEZ-BENGOECHEA, Blanca. Children with disabilities as child abuse victims: a review. Psychosocial Intervention [online]. 2006, vol.15, n.3, pp.293-306. ISSN 1132-0559.

The appropriate protection of children’s with disabilities rights is already a non addressed issue in our societies. The main objective of this review is to increase the awareness of the professionals about the greater risk of abuse and neglect in children with disabilities. This special risk is not only explained by personal, family or social factors, but also for the greater difficulties to detect the abuse situations, to evaluate the credibility of suspects, to report the suspected abuse and to give the appropriate treatment of those that the abuse indeed takes place, especially when the victims are children with learning disabilities. The recognition of this greater vulnerability and their causes among professionals related with child protection and disability will be the first step for the prevention and the early and effective detection of these situations.

Palabras clave : Abuse; Children; Disabilities; Neglect; Risk factors; Child protection.
