The Neglected Child provides everything educators and caregivers need to know to identify and intervene in neglectful situations, while also creating a safe, nurturing, and protective environment for young children. From defining the different types and levels of severity of neglect to establishing suspicion and reporting neglectful situations, this book is filled with helpful information from expert psychologists and educators in the field today.

Each chapter includes a brief quiz to assess chapter learning and Notes from the Field that represent real-life stories the authors have encountered in their work. The appendices at the end of the text include reproducible handouts, sample statements for parent handbooks, self-assessments for teachers, and important contact information to use when reporting neglect.

“The Neglected Child is a 128-page compendium comprised of what every adult (and especially classroom teachers) need to know on creating a safe, nurturing, and protective environment for young children who are suffering or are recovering from parental neglect. Deftly organized, informed and informative, and thoroughly 'reader friendly' in presentation and text, The Neglected Child is very strongly recommended for professional, school, community, and library troubled child instructional reference collections.”
