Multi-Disciplinary Team (MDT) Members will make referrals to Children's Advocacy Centers where their staff members will conduct forensic interviews and determine what additional services are needed for the child. The MDT is a team of professionals from child protective services, law enforcement, district attorney's office, mental and medical health facilities and child advocacy centers. Intake assessments will assure that children receive the appropriate service based on the circumstances of the case and their need. An Activity log, which includes the services provided, recommendations, and outcome will be maintained. The MDT Coordinator in collaboration with MDT members will help ensure that each agency has current information pertaining to their clients so they can make the necessary referrals and provide the best service possible to clients and their families.
