PA: Abused, neglected children often lack safety net of mandatory reporters
PennLive – December 28, 2016
Cathleen Palm, founder of The Center for Children’s Justice, points out that in spite of the systems in place, there is an added level of vulnerability that comes with very young children. Mandated reporters – professionals such as teachers and doctors who work with children – are by law required to report suspected abuse, but very young children may not have that connection.
