Children with special needs are completely reliant on the people who care for them. These caregivers are trusted to act in the children’s best interests at all times and to ensure their safety and well-bring above all else. Tragically, it is possible for the people who are entrusted with the care of special needs children to use their positions to perpetrate unthinkable acts, including physical and sexual abuse.
Many special needs children aren’t even aware that they are being abused. They don’t know their rights, so they don’t question the abuses that are being committed against them. If you suspect that your child is being sexually abused, it is important that you seek the advice of an experienced Los Angeles lawyer with the ability to see that your child’s rights are protected.
