Texas daycare abuse can have a lasting effect on children – both when it comes to medical issues and mental health issues.
If your child has been physically or sexually abused at a daycare, it is vital that you immediately get medical treatment. Even if the child seems healthy, he or she may be suffering from internal injuries, fractured bones, or a head injury. Getting immediate medical care is key in your child’s recovery and also important in establishing medical evidence of abuse.
Your child may also need treatment in the form of therapy or medication for mental health issues that follow daycare abuse and neglect. Depending on the age of your child, psychological issues stemming from the trauma they endured could manifest itself in a number of ways – and could take years to surface. Be sure to talk to your doctor about the signs of post-traumatic stress, depression, and anxiety in children and to be aware of any developing issues as your child ages.
