Identifying Prevalence of Known Maltreatment among Children with Developmental Disabilities

The objective of this secondary data analysis project led by Alexis Duncan of the Brown School is to link data from the Centers for Disease Control Autism and Developmental Disabilities Monitoring (ADDM) Network with data on official reports of child maltreatment from Missouri Department of Social Services Children’s Division to obtain the incidence and lifetime prevalence of forms of child neglect, physical abuse, and sexual abuse and to determine what characteristics predict reports of child maltreatment among children with autism spectrum disorder, intellectual disability, and cerebral palsy.
