The National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC) in the UK have identified the following signs as requiring further profesional investigation

Physical signsEdit

  • a failure to thrive and grow, particularly if the child thrives when away from home
  • delayed development, either physical or emotional.
