Rules to Remember when Reporting Suspected Child Abuse and Neglect:
1. Report Immediately. Some people wait weeks or even months before making a report. In order to help the child, we must make reports in a timely fashion.
2. Be factual, clear and descriptive about your concerns. Your feelings will not be helpful to the screener. Try to only report your observations about the situation and anything that you may know about the family and children.
3. Know the names of the family members and children. If not, try to gather as much identifying information as possible.
4. Continue to report any new observations to DSS. Remember that it may make several attempts and contacts with the family before DSS can determine that any safety concerns exist.
