Child Abuse Prevention



Due to concerns regarding mandated reporting and issues of abuse, ASPP has developed the Child Abuse Prevention Toolkit and provided links to resources for both professionals and parents. This information is provided to you as a service to give you helpful information on this difficult topic. However, please remember that if you suspect that a child is a victim of abuse, contact Childline at 800-932-0313.
 
ASPP Child Abuse Prevention Toolkit
Included in this toolkit are Pennsylvania statutes associated with child abuse, articles related to child abuse and mandated reporting, as well as links to helpful websites and fact sheets.
  Child Abuse Resources
Publications and resources related to State and Federal civil laws on child abuse and neglect, child welfare, and adoption. Federal laws provide standards and guidelines; however, these issues are primarily governed by State laws and regulations in the United States.
