Description: Child abuse and neglect are major public health concerns of ever-increasing scope and severity. Physical therapists must recognize that at least a portion of their pediatric patients experience physical, emotional, or sexual abuse or neglect, and should be alert to the signs. APTA's guidelines, updated this year, give a needed background on the issue and the role that physical therapists have in identifying, treating and advocating for children who are abused.
