You will be greeted by a CAC staff member who will check you and your child in and show you to a child-friendly waiting area where your child can play, read, or watch TV while you wait to meet the interviewer.
The interviewer will come out to meet you and your child and briefly talk with you about the interview process. If you or your child prefer, the interviewer will then show you the interview room where your child will be interviewed.
Once prepared, the interviewer will accompany your child to the interview room to complete the interview.
The Child & Family Advocate will meet with you to learn more about you as a caregiver and provide a few resource materials that you can review while your child is being interviewed.
Following the interview, the interviewer will return your child to the waiting area.
A forensic nurse will visit with you next and explain the services available to your child while at the CAC.
MDT members will meet with you (outside the presence of the child), explain next steps, and answer any questions you may have.
The Child & Family Advocate will meet with you again to discuss services and resources available to your child and family.
The Child & Family Advocate will accompany you to the lobby – this concludes your visit to the CAC.
