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

disclosure, the importance of making a report, how to make a report, and how to
overcome the fears and barriers around reporting.
