Home Visitors are Mandated Reporters thus required by law to report any suspected child abuse or neglect. Making a report of this kind can be very difficult. This online training was created to minimize the difficulty of reporting by preparing home visitors for the process, helping them to better understand the reporting requirements, and gain a greater insight of the process that occurs once the report has been made.
