  • Children can become victims of child sexual abuse at any age – from infancy to adolescence. #CSAAM
  • Children are most at risk between the ages of four and eleven, and both sexes are equally at risk. #CSAAM
  • Victims come from every social background. Children with disabilities are more vulnerable and may therefore be more at risk of abuse. #CSAAM

  • A baby who is being sexually abused may have visible abrasions in and around the genitals and anus. #CSAAM
  • Babies, in particular, are vulnerable because of their size and their inability to tell anyone of the abuse. #CSAAM
  • Babies who are being sexually abused may develop frequent urinary infections and/ or sexually transmitted infections. #CSAAM
  • Babies cannot communicate verbally with their parents and caregivers, but they may seem uncomfortable or irritable because of pain. #CSAAM
  • If your young child displays sexually inappropriate behavior, unusual knowledge about sexual activity, this could be a sign of CSA.
  • Nearly 70% of all reported sexual assaults (including assaults on adults) occur to children ages 17 and under (Snyder, 2000).
  • In 2000, the sexual assault victimization rate for youths 12 to 17 was 2.3 times higher than for adults (US). #CSAAM
