Kempe Inter-Disciplinary Staffing (KIDS) Program

What is KIDS?

The Kempe Center’s KIDS program provides independent, expert consultation services for highly complex cases involving concerns about child abuse and neglect or child health and well-being. A team of experts from multiple disciplines is selected and assembled based on the unique requirements of each case. Available disciplines include child abuse pediatrics, toxicology (adult substance abuse and infants/children exposed to drugs), child and adolescent psychiatry, psychology, social work, behavioral health, law, ethics, JEDI (Justice, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion), and others identified as needed. The KIDS consultant panel reviews pertinent case material (when applicable), meets with requesting parties, and produces specific and actionable recommendations based on the questions posed. We address issues regarding child abuse, neglect, child placement, permanency, safety and/or treatment plan recommendations through an equity lens.
