What happens during the interview with my child?

During the interview, your child will speak with a person specially trained to talk to children about their experiences. Interviews are held in a room which allows for observation by other members of the team and is recorded so that your child may only have to speak about their experiences once. The interviewer asks neutral, fact-finding questions in a way that is sensitive to your child's age and ability while gathering the information needed to successfully investigate allegations of abuse.
