The primary targeted population is focused around the ages of 7-11
In our area, we are already able to observe the impact of giving information
to teachers concerning the indicators of sexual abuse and the responsibility
to report any incident by the increase in the number of teachers reporting
abuse to the legal authorities.
Another target population of this program is parents in regard to
education about sexual abuse. Parent information meetings will be
held prior to implementation of the program in the classroom. Parents
will have the opportunity to preview all videos and curriculum.
Parents will also be given information
about child sexual abuse.
Child Welfare Information Gateway connects professionals and concerned citizens to timely and well-balanced information on programs, research, legislation, and statistics regarding the safety, permanency, and well-being of children and families.
