Shaken Baby Prevention Primer for EI Providers
Course Objectives, Outcomes & Other Relevant Information

Every year there are at least 1,200 to 1,400 cases of SBS in the United States - the leading cause of all child abuse cases - and 60% of victims are male children. The average age is 3-8 months old, most cases occur in children under age two, although some victims may be up to 4 years old. Perpetrators are males in 65%-90% of cases, mostly in their early twenties, and are either the baby’s father or mother’s boyfriend; if a woman is responsible for the abuse, it is usually the babysitter or childcare provider rather than the mother. While the primary hospitalization of a shaken-baby is estimated to cost $75,000-$100,000 the lifetime costs of special care to survivors can cost up to $300,000 in the first 5 years following the assault. The cost in terms of human suffering and loss of life is staggering and without monetary estimate given the value of human life and the tragedy of this monstrous abuse of the most innocent and unprotected of our most valued resource - babies.

What is it about the anatomy of an infant that makes it so vulnerable? What is the ‘triad’ and is it always an ‘open & shut’ case for SBS? Why do infants cry, and how does peak-crying relate to incidence of SBS? As an early intervention provider making visits to the home, what signs suggest SBS? In which instance should a referral be made for respite or social work services to a family that is at risk for SBS?

Early intervention home-care providers are on the front-line of entry into homes where SBS may occur, and must know how to read the signs which might precipitate SBS, and how to stave off injury to the child by appropriate action prior to an incident of SBS. If SBS is suspected, know the signs and symptoms, and your obligation as a mandated reporter to alert the appropriate authorities.

Several states, including New York, Texas and Ohio, have passed legislation that require SBS training for child care providers and/or distribution of SBS prevention materials to parents of new babies. This primer is a MUST READ for all early intervention and pre-school therapists who service the professional home care needs of the infant, toddler, and child.
