Sexual Abuse of Individuals with Disabilities: Prevention Strategies for Clinical Practice
McEachern, Adriana G.
Journal of Child Sexual Abuse, v21 n4 p386-398 2012
Sexual abuse of individuals with disabilities occurs in alarming proportions, although the prevalence and incidence of such abuse is difficult to determine. Although all states maintain statistics on child sexual abuse, the rate of victimization for individuals with disabilities is not specific. This paper reviews several studies conducted on sexual abuse of individuals with disabilities with a focus on clinical prevention strategies. Recommendations for future directions in prevention and research are provided.
