What is Kids Talk Child Advocacy Center?
Kids Talk is a nationally accredited child-friendly place where children ages 3-17 as well as adults with developmental disabilities can speak with a specially trained forensic interviewer regarding allegations of abuse and neglect that may have been committed against them. Kids Talk brings the system to the child by providing a single interview for the investigative needs of law enforcement, Indiana Department of Child Services and prosecution. Victim advocacy is also provided for the child and non-offending caregivers to connect the family with therapeutic, medical and social service needs and to advocate for the child within the criminal justice and child welfare systems. Kids Talk also provides child sexual abuse prevention programs to over 12,000 students each year in Madison and Hancock counties.
