This session addresses the realities of child abuse and the SLP’s responsibility to recognize and report abuse. The speaker discusses legal definitions, signs, and symptoms of child abuse as well as common perpetrators and how they gain access to children through a process called grooming. The session—a recorded session from ASHA’s 2020 Private Practice Connect online conference—addresses how to communicate with a child who makes a disclosure, the importance of making a report, how to make a report, and how to overcome the fears and barriers around reporting.
