Preventing the abuse of children with disabilities will never happen if we don't first find the most appropriate way to respond to the abuse that is already happening. The great tragedy of this problem is that the children are too often ignored or shunned because responders do not have the right tools to handle the problem. Through funding support from the Department of Justice Office for Victims of Crime, everyone in our field can gain the core knowledge and key skills. It all happens at The Disability and Personal Rights Project.

Created to support professionals, scholars and students interested in exploring the etiology of child abuse and strategies for prevention. This index and directory of links was first developed under the Strong Families, Strong Soldiers Project at Cornell Cooperative Extension and The Family Life Development Center. It was later revised for presentation at the National Conference on Child Abuse and Neglect, September 1996, updated for the NCPCA-NYS Prevention Conference, May 15-16, 1997, and then further revised as a part of supporting the United States Marine Corps Family Advocacy Programs, June 1997, and frequently since then. The latest revisions are being implemented in conjunction with Child Abuse Prevention Month, and in support of special initiatives of our network. We offer a special link on evaluation, as well -- since no prevention effort can do without it!

Evidence-based strategies for child abuse prevention are one key to the protection of children. If you know of links that support this key aspect of our goal, please Let Us Know!

Notice: Links on the Web can go out of date without notice. We try to keep up with changes. Help us catch any "Missing Links." Do you know a good link we don't have? Help us in "Building Links."
