Kvam, Marit Hoem
Child Abuse & Neglect: The International Journal, v24 n8 p1073-84 Aug 2000
Findings from a Norwegian study indicated that of 1,293 children examined for possible sexual assault in the years 1994-1996, only 1.7 percent had severe disabilities. Altogether, 6.4 percent of the children had a smaller or less severe disability. These children were more often assessed as probably assaulted than those without disabilities. (Contains references.)
