Michigan School Sexual Assault Lawyers
When parents leave their children in the care of school personnel, they do so with the belief and understanding that those professionals will provide, at minimum, a safe environment. Regrettably, due to lapses in attention or care, or due to ineffective policies and procedures, children may suffer harm in a school setting. Most disturbingly, there are predators who may seek to perpetrate sexual assault against a child, often by taking advantage of the access which their professional capacity affords them.

Signs Your Child May Have Been Sexually Abused
Children who have been sexually abused sometimes do not understand they are being abused. In many instances, these children may deny that they were abused, only to disclose abuse when further inquiry is made. It is prudent to be alert if your child’s behavior suddenly changes. The following are possible indications of child sexual abuse:
- Your child has nightmares and unusual sleep patterns
- Your child hides a secret he or she has with an adult
- Your child wears extra layers of clothes
- Your child has an intense fear of a particular person or place
- Your child suddenly has money
- Your child says new words for private body areas
If your child displays more than one of the above traits, talk to him or her about the situation. Then, contact an attorney if there is reason to believe that sexual assault has taken place.
