The North Carolina Division of Social Services recognizes the need that County Departments of Social Services have for interpreting services when conducting child protective services assessments involving children who are hard of hearing or hearing impaired and reside in one of the DHHS divisions, institutions or schools.
The use of an interpreting service at the time a child protective services case is initiated serves to enhance the assessment process by increasing the objectiveness of the process. Interpreting services during an investigative assessment may include assisting the county Department of Social Services staff during interviews with alleged victim children, with collateral contacts, and interviews with staff within DHHS divisions, institutions or schools as needed. The service also may include interpreting assistance during the court process when an assessment results in court action.
