Mandated Reporter

Description

An in-depth presentation for professionals who work with children on what they need to know and consider regarding Mandated Reporting:
• Who must report suspected abuse or neglect of children?
• What happens when a report of child abuse or neglect is made?
• Why are some cases accepted for investigation while others are not?
• What are the legal definitions of abuse and neglect and how are they interpreted?
• What legal protections are afforded mandated reporters?
• What are the possible penalties for failure to report?
• What happens after a report is accepted?
Focusing on
1. The ability of the state to intervene in families to protect children comes from the authority granted to the State by law. Both legislation and case law established by the courts set the limits of State intervention.
2. While there are many laws guiding child protection and child welfare interventions, the most important in Illinois is the Abused and Neglected Child Reporting Act (ANCRA). Illinois and all other states require a wide range of professionals to report suspected child maltreatment.
3. These professionals and any other person required by law to report suspected abuse or neglect are called mandated reporters.
