Warning Signs of Possible Sexual Abuse

Sexually abused children rarely talk about their abuse.  Infants and toddlers can’t talk, and older children choose to keep silent.  Adults can help children by recognizing signs of possible sexual abuse.

These signs SUGGEST sexual abuse.  Keep in mind that some sexually abused children do not exhibit any signs.

Children up to age 3

Children ages 2 to 9

Older children and adolescents

If you notice one or two of these signs and have concerns, call your local law enforcement or Child Protective Services.
