Physical signs of maltreatment are those that are readily observable. They may be mild or severe, such as numerous, deep bruises or broken bones, or more subtle, such as malnutrition or the wearing of inappropriate clothing (e.g., a lack of warm clothing in winter). Behavioral indicators may exist independently or may accompany physical indicators. Educators are in an excellent position to notice behavioral indicators.
