Early Development Network
Under CAPTA, all maltreated children under the age of 3 must be referred for early intervention services. If verified, the young child can access services through the school district or ESU. However, there are barriers to receiving such services, including lack of consent from the parent, incomplete information given to the services coordinator, and under-identification of issues. The NRPVYC works with the Early Development Network on improving verification of children in CAPTA related cases. This work includes trainings, webinars, support to local communities and other activities.
