Kansas Univ., Lawrence. Beach Center on Families and Disability.; Erikson Inst. for Advanced Study in Child Development, Chicago, IL.
This report presents recommendations and outcomes of a November 1994 invitational symposium on abuse and neglect of children with disabilities. Individual sections provide a summary of the recommendations resulting from the symposium, the symposium's purposes, a list of participants and cosponsors, the meeting's charges and concerns, definitions, a statement of the extent and nature of the problem, and a listing of work groups. The 17 recommendations are organized into seven issues: (1) awareness (promote awareness within and by existing organizations and service systems); (2) prevention (provide universal prevention efforts through public health initiatives); (3) collaboration (collaborate across all professions to increase service effectiveness); (4) training (train professionals on the multiple issues regarding children with disabilities who have been abused and neglected); (5) families (increase the capacity of families to withstand stressors contributing to the abuse and neglect of children); (6) children (listen to and respect the informed preferences and priorities of children); and (7) policy (adopt a uniform child protection statute).
