Approximately 8% of children in the US have disabilities, and these children are more likely to be abused or neglected than their non-disabled peers. The authors highlight the importance of researchers in the child maltreatment field to include children's disability status in their studies of abuse and neglect.  They provide a brief overview of what research has found so far and include possible questions for researchers to include.

Abuse of the disabled child: a systematic review of population-based studies

Authors:
GOVINDSHENOY N., SPENCER N.
Journal article citation:
Child: Care, Health and Development, 33(5), September 2007, pp.552-558.
Publisher:
Wiley-Blackwell

Systematic review of population-based studies published between 1966 and January 2006. Medline, Embase, Cinahl, Cochrane library, National Research Register, Social Sciences database and PsychInfo databases were searched for potentially relevant studies. Inclusion criteria: population-based cohort, case–control or cross-sectional studies of children <18 years of age that reported empirical data on the association of abuse with disability. Risk estimates were expressed as odds ratios with 95% confidence intervals (CI) where possible. Meta-analysis was not undertaken because of heterogeneity of studies. Four studies met the inclusion criteria. Two were longitudinal studies, one was a retrospective birth cohort and the remaining study was a cross-sectional survey. Types of disability studied varied widely as did methods used to ascertain abuse and neglect. Two studies accounted for potential confounding. Three studies reported an association between psychological and emotional disabilities and abuse. Two studies reported an association of learning disability with abuse. Only one study examined the association of physical disability (cerebral palsy) with abuse reporting an adjusted odds ratio for all forms of abuse of 1.79 (95% CI 0.96, 3.36) and for physical abuse of 3.00 (95% CI 1.29, 6.78). The evidence base for an association of disability with abuse and neglect is weak. Psychological and emotional problems, and learning difficulties appear to be associated with abuse but this association might arise because these conditions share a common aetiological pathway with abuse. There is limited evidence that physical disability predisposes to abuse.

Domestic violence and children with disabilities: working towards enhancing social work practice

Authors:
BALDRY Eileen, BRATEL Joan, BRECKENRIDGE Jan
Journal article citation:
Australian Social Work, 59(2), June 2006, pp.185-197.
Publisher:
Taylor and Francis

Globally, domestic violence, where a family member, partner or ex-partner attempts to physically, sexually or psychologically dominate or harm the other, is now recognised as one of the most entrenched and pervasive forms of violence in society. Nevertheless, internationally and in Australia, the occurrence of domestic and other forms of violence in families affecting children with a disability is poorly understood. The present article examines the information available on domestic violence and children with a disability. Through the use of case studies drawn from a large disability organisation in New South Wales, Australia, practice issues with families where domestic violence affects a child with a disability are drawn out for social workers to consider. These considerations are designed to enhance practice in this field.
