After a disclosure or concern of sexual abuse, it is important for a child to be seen by a medical professional who has special training in the medical examination of abused children. The York County Children's' Advocacy Center offers non-emergency medical evaluations in our child-friendly examination room, provided by the Forensic Examiner Team of York Hospital/WellSpan Health. The exam will help:
- To ensure the health and well-being of the child
- To reassure the child and family that everything is okay with his/her body
- To further help link the child and family to other necessary services and resources
After the exam, the results will be shared with the family and child in an age-appropriate manner.
