Be Safe: What is Neglect Social Story
This resource, part of the Be Safe resource collection focused on the prevention of sexual abuse and assault, provides information about neglect in a visual format.
Sometimes people are supposed to take care of me.
Sometimes people make sure I have food and water.
Sometimes people make sure I have a safe place to live.
Sometimes people make sure I stay healthy.
When people do not take care of my needs, it is called neglect.
If I need extra help, I should tell other adults that I trust.
