FAQ: Question & Answer
How can I recognize the signs associated with child abuse and neglect?
You can learn about the signs associated with child abuse and neglect by viewing the Child Welfare Information Gateway fact sheet, What Is Child Abuse and Neglect? Recognizing the Signs and Symptoms.
If you need to report a case of suspected child abuse or neglect, each state designates specific agencies to receive and investigate reports of suspected child abuse and neglect. Typically, this responsibility is carried out by Child Protective Services (CPS). For information or assistance with reporting, please call Childhelp® at 800-4-A-CHILD (800-422-4453) or contact your local CPS agency. Additional State contact information is available from the Child Welfare Information Gateway Web site.
