ABSTRACT

The purpose of the present study was to review domestic and abroad literature on child abuse and neglect of children with disabilities and to suggest directions for future research. Using the scoping study method as one type of literature review, a total of 29 studies were selected and analyzed in terms of participants, study designs, data collection methods, and research themes. The findings suggested that while children with disabilities or victims took part in the majority of abroad studies, Korean studies employed parents of children with disabilities. Second, most studies employed survey research in which a review of records or survey questionnaires were used. Third, previous studies were categorized into four themes, incidence of child maltreatment, risk factors for child maltreatment, consequences of child maltreatment, and service systems. However, there was relatively a few studies on service systems. Based on these findings, implications for future research were discussed in order to enhance prevention and treatment of child maltreatment .
