At A Child's Voice, we offer forensic interviews, forensic medical examinations, case tracking through our multi-disciplinary team, family advocacy and support services, and community education and outreach.
At the request of law enforcement or child protective services, we offer forensic interviews by specially trained forensic interview specialists. These take place at our child-friendly center and are audio/video recorded to avoid multiple interviews and retraumatization of the children.
We work with our multi-disciplinary team, comprised of: law enforcement, child protective services, the District Attorney's office, medical providers, mental health providers and victim advocates. This team approach allows us to efficiently and effectively communicate the status of cases to ensure all agencies are working together to best support children and families.
Forensic Medical Exams
When necessary, we provide forensic medical examinations through a partnership with Children's Healthcare of Atlanta. We utilize telemedicine, where we have a specialized nurse at our center and consult the specialists at Children's with a live audio/video link.
Through various avenues, we work to provide public awareness and education of child sexual abuse to help with prevention and appropriate response to cases of child abuse. Our center is a site for Children's Healthcare of Atlanta's Long Distance Learning program. Additonally, we are available to provide presentations and informational sessions about child abuse when requested.
Family Advocacy & Support
We offer support for caregivers of the children we serve while they are at the center and follow-up to address any new needs. Additonally, we work closely with counseling and other mental health agencies to ensure anyone who needs counseling is able to recieve it.
Stewards of Children Training
We offer the evidence-informed child sexual abuse prevention curriculum from Darkness to Light, called Stewards of Children. This 2-2.5 hour video and discussion based class is designed for any adults who interact with children. Darkness to Light's Stewards of Child training "increases knowledge, improves attitudes, and changes child protective behaviors".
