Through a collaboration with Dell Children’s Medical Center and their CARE (Child Abuse Resource and Education) Program, services are provided for child abuse and maltreatment concerns including sexual abuse, physical abuse and neglect. All examinations are conducted at the Center’s medical clinic by medical professionals lead by a pediatrician board-certified in child abuse.

Physical Abuse/Sexual Abuse Evaluations

A medical professional specialized in assessing physical trauma and child sexual abuse conducts on-site examinations of children who have experienced abused.

Psychiatric Evaluations and Medication Management

The Center is able to provide children ages 17 and under access to psychiatric services. These services include referrals for psychiatric evaluations, developmental assessments, and medication management services.

Our Medical Team

The Center for Child Protection on-site medical clinic is staffed by the physicians and staff at Dell Children’s Medical Center. Led by Center Medical Director Katherine Snyder, MD, MPH, FAAP, the Dell team is comprised of pediatric nurse practitioners, licensed master social workers and clinical administration professionals.

Dr. Snyder is board certified in child abuse pediatrics, giving her the skills to properly evaluate children who may be victims of abuse or neglect. Child abuse pediatricians are the physicians most able to help determine if and how a child was injured, and when appropriate, can actively search for medical problems or other explanations for a child’s symptoms.
