Defining the Unknown-Neglect.
Maggiolo, Carla E.
Child neglect typically involves a failure on the part of parents, guardians or other responsible parties to provide for the child's basic needs, such as food, shelter, medical care, education opportunities, or protection and supervision. Intended to help teachers recognize the symptoms of child neglect in their students, this article discusses the manifestation of child neglect in the classroom. The article focuses on neglect as a specific kind of child abuse, and discusses kinds of neglect and how teachers can provide an island of safety for neglected children. Issues of neglect are considered, including the lack of physical care, emotional maltreatment, the effect of neglect on school performance, and the social and behavioral indicators of neglect, such as aggressiveness, hypervigilance, and dissociation. Based on interviews, the experiences of four teachers with neglected children in their classrooms are also examined. (JPB)
