Learn how to identify and report child abuse or neglect and refer children who may have been maltreated. This factsheet provides information on the legal definitions, different types, and signs and symptoms of abuse and neglect. What will happen after I make a report of child abuse or neglect?  After you make a report, it will be sent to child protective services (CPS).
