Differential Response (Gallup)

Differential Response to Reports of Child Abuse and Neglect

Desert View is proud to partner with CYFD (Children’s Youth & Family Department) along with a growing number of child welfare agencies who are employing differential response (DR) in an effort to respond more flexibly to child abuse and neglect reports and to better meet individual family needs. In these systems, families with screened-in child maltreatment reports may receive either a traditional investigation or an alternative assessment response, depending on the type of allegation and other considerations.
