Special Considerations for Cases Involving Young Children
Pre-school children pose a special challenge in sexual abuse assessment, because of their limited communication skills and increased suggestibility, when compared to older children. This chapter provides guidelines for both very young children, ages eighteen months to three years, and older pre-schoolers. It describes the unique developmental considerations and data-gathering methods for pre-school children when there are sexual abuse concerns.
