This study follows up a small sample of 8-year-old children for whom there had been concerns of abuse or neglect before their first birthdays.
The report provides insight into the lives of these children and their families, including:
- how decisions made by professionals in the children’s early years have continued to affect their lives
- the role of social workers, primary school teachers and special educational needs coordinators (SENCOs)
- the children’s own experiences and perceptions
