Child Center, Inc. (The), Wentzville
KIDS’ Rights© Sexual Abuse Prevention Program
Prevention Focus: Primary – School Based Sexual Abuse Prevention Education
The KIDS’ Rights Sexual Abuse Prevention program strengthens the child’s ability to recognize and resist assault and educates adults on their responsibility to protect children from abuse. This is accomplished by presenting first to educators within the school system, then parents and children. Through interactive discussion, videos, role-playing and visual aids, children gain increased knowledge and awareness about sexual abuse and prevention skills. Education regarding on-line safety is presented to older children. The focus for professionals is to teach them their role as a mandated reporter and how to handle disclosures made by children in order to provide the crucial support from the very beginning. Parents are taught the warning signs of abuse, strategies on ways to listen and respond to their child, and how to report abuse and get needed help and support. This program covers the northeast counties of Pike, Marion, Lewis, Clark, Scotland, Schuyler, Knox, Shelby, Monroe and Ralls.
